SAVE Ohio Pets is hosting a free pet wellness clinic and spay/neuter event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday,

The event will be held at the Ohio Health Center, 1000 E. Broad St. The John and Christine Tortorella Family Foundation and Bear’s Angels are sponsoring this free event.

The event will include the Rascal Animal Hospital Mobile Unit that will be performing 55 spay/neuters on site.

Volunteer veterinarians from Beachwold Veterinary Hospital and VCA Animal Hospital are staffing a wellness clinic that will provide vaccines, rabies, microchips and spay/neuter vouchers for more than 70 animals.

Hundreds of bags of pet food will also be handed out after donations from Mutts and Co. and Columbus Humane.

“SAVE Ohio Pets is thrilled to combine efforts with the Tortorella Foundation and Bear’s Angels. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population in central Ohio through community wellness clinics, promoting spay/neuter, adoption, volunteering and education. Partnering with local groups to provide these much-needed services is so important for Franklin County.  Reducing non-vaccinated pets and unwanted litters ensure that pets stay healthy, in their homes and out of the shelter,” said Susan Geier, SAVE Ohio Pets Board Member.

Appointments for the event are required due to limited availability and attendees must be able to provide proof of government assistance at check-in. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 855-243-SAVE.
