Wow, what can we say to all of our amazing volunteers, participants and everyone involved in Saturday’s semi-annual Pontiac vaccine clinic? What an amazing group of people!
Thanks to everyone, 692 dogs and cats were vaccinated in very bad weather! It was raining pretty much the entire day, cold and windy but our team perservered and so did the hundreds of pet owners that came from all over Michigan to get their dogs and cats vaccinated. And not one person complained! We have never received so many phone calls after the clinic from the community thankful for this event!
Oakland County Animal Control was also on-site and sold 114 dog licenses! This event is very community friendly and allows dogs owners to get their dogs vaccinated and licensed the same day.
The Animal Care Network also gave out free dog and cat food and treats to every single pet owner that attended.
A big thank you to our friend and fellow humanitarian Dave Coleman, Centerstage QTMC
team and Mike Ono from Glenwood Plaza for hosting this event with the Animal Care Network.
Thank you to Ken Snow and Hagopian for sponsoring the event and helping with transport, set up and breakdown.
Thank you to Dr. Jim and the entire vet tech teams, team Ann Marie, team Erika,
each and every one of you were exceptional, patient and really took time with every single
owner and their pets, whether it be by clipping nails or looking at and discussing other issues.
Thank you to Edwina for manning the all-day courier service to pick up owners and their pets that had no transportation.
Thank you to Karen and Doug Doyle from Hungry Howies for providing lunch and showing appreciation to the volunteers.
Thank you to Andrea Johns and her team for bringing a vehicle full of dog and cat food
for people that needed it!
Thank you to the Tompor and Corporate Auto team!
There are so many and too many other people to mention by name, so thank you to each
and every one of you for making this happen. From the registration teams, to the line-walkers, to the runners, to the crowd control team, the clean up team, everyone!
Thank you so much!
Here is a note from Denise who volunteered for the first time:
“Thank You for all the work you and the volunteers do. It really was a well-oiled machine and I was very impressed. Count me in for next Spring.”
The 2013 vaccine clinics are tentatively scheduled for Saturday April 20 and Saturday October 12, 2013.
Hope to see you all in 2013!
