How does the Ontario SPCA Veterinary Outreach Providers assist?

The communities we go to both don’t have clinics inside an affordable distance for purchasers with out private transportation, or native clinics are overwhelmed and unable to tackle new purchasers. Our main clientele contains Indigenous communities, in addition to rescues and purchasers which have both been referred by their municipality or social companies and/or those that don’t have an present relationship with a veterinarian.
One of many Ontario SPCA’s main missions is to offer high quality inexpensive care to those who want it probably the most. We’re additionally keen about stopping pet overpopulation. We hope to have the ability to present preventative care, together with spay/neuter and vaccinations, in addition to heartworm testing and parasite prevention, to communities which have restricted entry to veterinary care.
