IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cornwall, ON (May 25, 2022) – The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s 38-foot Mobile Animal Wellness Services unit is in Cornwall this week for a spay/neuter clinic for cats from underserved pet families.

Funded by the City of Cornwall, the SPCA Mobile Animal Wellness Services unit will be providing spay/neuter surgeries from May 25-27. A total of 64 appointments have been pre-booked in advance through the city’s subsidized spay/neuter program.

“We are pleased to be able to return to Cornwall with the SPCA Animal Wellness Services unit to assist the community with its ongoing animal management efforts,” says Jennifer Bluhm, Vice President, Community Outreach Services, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “We celebrate the City of Cornwall for making animal management a priority, as well as the pet families who have registered their cats for this mobile spay/neuter clinic.” 

Thanks to a grant provided by the Pet Valu family of stores, the Ontario SPCA launched its SPCA Mobile Animal Wellness Services Unit in 2019 year to deliver wellness examinations and spay/neuter services to underserved communities. In addition to supporting hundreds of local animal shelters and charities through Companions for Change events since 2018, Pet Valu has funded five rescue transportation and mobile health clinics for animal rescue organizations in Nova Scotia, Ontario and British Columbia.
