OPIN‘s FREE Microchip Clinic. Sunday, March, 16 from 11:00a.m. – 2:00p.m. at Choice Pet in Stamford, 949 High Ridge Rd. No appointment necessary, but dogs must be leashed. Cats must be secured in carriers.
Also Rabies vaccines will be offered at just $15.00 in addition to the free microchip.
OPIN’s goal is to chip every pet. “Project Chip’n is another community outreach program offered by OPIN. A microchip implant takes just seconds for a vet to administer, and then your pet has permanent ID that will last its entire lifetime. One in three pets will stray during their lifetime. Give your pet the best chance of coming back to you.
Adopt Didi, a foster dog in Greenwich. Didi was rushed by her owner to an emergency clinic after she was attacked by another dog in the household, while nursing her newborn puppies. She needed immediate medical attention, but when the owner found out how much care she needed, he surrendered her to the vet to be euthanized.
Her coat was badly matted and she smelled of urine and feces. She had to be shaved to the skin to see what sort of injuries she had sustained. Veterinary personnel reached out to Cat Assistance, Inc. and they agreed to cover her medical expenses. After a week of medical care, she was released to a foster home in Greenwich, where she is doing great.
She’s a wonderful little four year old dog that rescue owner Sarah Hart says she is “lucky to be able to help” — but she is asking friends and supporters to assist with her medical bills. If you can contribute to the Didi Emergency Medical Fund information can be found here (http://catassistanceny.org/adopt.html.php).
DiDi is a friendly dog who sleeps quite a bit. She seems to have a lower energy level then other dogs her age and may do better in a home that doesn’t expect her to be ‘playful’ — she is more of a ‘snuggler’ than a dog park kind of dog. If you are interested in meeting her, please email[email protected] for more information.
Cat Assistance fosters dogs in Greenwich and is always looking for additional foster homes. If you would like more information about fostering, please contact Tina Aronson ([email protected]) for cats or Kerri Ann ([email protected]) for dogs.
