140 Dogs Helped Through Community Dog Day

SHARE:

On Saturday, November 10, Dane County Humane Society hosted Community Dog Day, an event held to provide services and education to Madison community members and their dogs.

Free dog vaccinations and pet supplies were available, as well as opportunities to learn about spay/neuter services, micro-chipping, pet nutrition and more.

Community Dog Day events are held in targeted neighborhoods were DCHS has seen the highest intake of stray dogs, providing supplies and resources to those in these neighborhoods in need. The goals are to reduce the number of stray dogs in the neighborhood, increase the number of stray dogs that are reunited with their families and help those struggling economically keep their pets happy in their own home.

This past Community Dog Day event was held at the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County in the Allied Drive neighborhood of Madison, WI. 140 dogs received a free vet exam, vaccinations, microchip and ID tag, flea/tick applicator, dog supplies and dog food at no cost. Owners also received information on spay/neuter services at reduced rates.

Volunteers and staff from DCHS, local veterinary clinic staff, UW School of Veterinary Medicine professors and students, Dr. Laura Peek, UW Pre-Vet Club, UW Shelter Medicine Student Vet Club, Students Today Leaders Forever UW Madison Chapter, Animal Legal Defense Fund at UW Madison, WisCARES, and Ayn Sapples from Bluedog Grooming at Love on a Leash all donated their time and skill to make this even a success.

This Community Dog Day event was made possible by the generous contributions of a DCHS donor.
