Group That Helps Low Income Pets, Needs Financial Boost Of Their Own
In just a few weeks the Saint Francis House Pet Care Clinic will celebrate four years of providing free veterinary care to homeless and low income families with pets.
The group believes no animal should suffer because their owner can not afford pet food, vaccines or flea treatment.
Each Tuesday a team of volunteers, veterinarians and students at UF's vet school join forces to care for everything from dogs and cats to birds and snakes.
For most involved, it's a labor of love but it's a job they can not do without the communities support and currently, donations are down.
In addition to being low on donations, St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic is facing a big move.
They have outgrown their headquarters at the homeless shelter and are in the process of finding a new spot to set up shop that's not too far away.
If you want more information or would like to make a donation visit St. Francis House Pet Care.
