Pet Wellness Clinic
September 12, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Times are tough these days. We understand many of our community members are experiencing financial hardship and need some help to keep their pets happy and healthy. Join us for a drive-up vaccine and microchip clinic at the shelter in Lewiston on Saturday, September 12th.
We will be offering microchips and basic vaccines, including rabies, for both dogs and cats. Please have a leash and collar on all dogs and all cats in carriers. We’ll have a socially-distanced drive-thru process and you won’t have to leave your vehicle. Please note that due to changing requirements from the ME Board of Veterinary Medicine, we have to limit these clinics to the first 50 vehicles. You will receive a number as you arrive.
Services are provided to citizens of our service area ( Auburn, Canton, Greene, Hebron, Leeds, Lewiston, Livermore, Mechanic Falls, Minot, New Gloucester, Turner, and Wales) for free, although donations are greatly appreciated and help us to provide more services like these.
Where to meet: Hanel Bros Parking Lot across the street from the Animal Emergency Clinic on Strawberry Avenue: A GAHS representative will check you in with a form for selecting vaccinations and assign you a number. GAHS staff and volunteers will direct you through the process after arrival. Be prepared for a wait. We attempt to move you through the process as quickly as possible, but animals are involved and sometimes take more time to handle than expected. We appreciate your patience.
For those on foot or being dropped off: same location and assigned numbers will be given. We ask that those without transportation practice social distancing in the lot and during the process. Keep your pets safe by staying away from cars.
Can’t get to the shelter or worried you cannot have your animals go through the clinic safely? We can provide other service options, so please call us at 783-2311 to discuss. Please note that we will not be handing out spay/neuter vouchers this year. Instead, we are able to offer low-cost services right through the shelter! If your pet needs a spay or neuter surgery, please call 783-2311 to learn about the current options.
