For those of you who do not know, I volunteer at a low cost spay/neuter clinic in La Marque Texas. Well, when I started volunteering last July, there was one vet, three techs, a receptionist and a clinic manager - and we only did spay/neuters. Now, we have 2 vets, 5 techs, 2 receptionists and a clinic manager - and now we're also running a wellness clinic. It's amazing to see how much it's grown in the 7 months I've been there. The staff are awesome and I enjoy going down and spending my Friday mornings there - even if it is hard to get up and get moving on my day off. When I see how much my help is appreciated, it makes it all worthwhile. Today, they did between 70 and 80 surgeries - and I have no idea how many people Jason ended up seeing in the wellness clinic. This is obviously a service that is needed here.
And let me tell you, it's a whole 'nother routine when there are *two* vets doing surgeries! I'd leave the back area to go check on the laundry and I'd come back to 3-4 packs needing to be washed, rinsed and repackaged. They kept me busy today. And I loved every minute of it! :)
If anyone is interested in learning more about the clinic go to the Saving Animals website and click on Animal Alliance Spay-Neuter Clinic. And while your there, why don't you check out all the other great things this group is doing?
