The sixth annual Ruff Start Rescue Wellness Clinic will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at the Zimmerman Civic Building, 25850 Main St.
The wellness clinic is a collaboration between Ruff Start Rescue and the Northwoods Animal Hospital, both located in Princeton. The clinic offers low-cost vaccinations, microchipping and testing. No appointments are needed; pets are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Previous vet records are required, and all animals must be either on leashes or in carriers.
The clinic is also an opportunity for Ruff Start Rescue to collect new and gently used animal supplies to support abused, neglected and stray animals taken in by the rescue and its volunteers. Rescued animals are paired with foster homes until they are adopted.
To expedite services the day of the clinic, a form is available to download at http://bit.ly/2ngFLCQ. Print the form, fill it out and bring it with you when you come to the clinic.
Available services for dogs include vaccines for distemper, bordatella, Lymes disease and rabies. Dog owners may also request a 4DX test for tick-borne diseases and heartworm tests.
Vaccines available for cats will guard against distemper, feline leukemia and rabies.
Non-vaccine-related services available allow pet owners to microchip their animals or get their nails trimmed.
