Monroe County Humane Association Announces Low-Cost Mobile Vaccine Clinic for Pets in Bloomington, Indiana

Staff report written from press release

Bloomington, Indiana – January 3, 2024

As the New Year kicks off, the Monroe County Humane Association (MCHA) in Bloomington, IN, is ensuring that furry companions receive a healthy start with its upcoming low-cost and appointment-free Mobile Vaccine Clinic for dogs and cats.

The MCHA aims to emphasize the importance of pet healthcare alongside personal resolutions. To facilitate accessible veterinary care, the Animal Care Campus at MCHA will open its doors on Sunday, January 7, 2024, from 1-3 p.m. for pet owners seeking preventative care and wellness services.

At the heart of these Mobile Clinics lies a spectrum of services, including essential legally mandated rabies vaccinations for pets aged 12 weeks and older. Furthermore, the clinic offers nail trims, anal gland expressions, microchips, and preventive measures against flea, tick, and heartworm infestations.

The clinic will extend subsidized rates to residents facing financial hardships, provided they bring valid documentation to the Mobile Vaccine Clinic. Safety measures dictate that cats must be brought in carriers, while dogs need to be leashed (non-retractable leashes). Pet owners must note that animals exhibiting signs of illness or aggression may be refused service.

Moreover, the MCHA welcomes inquiries from communities or organizations interested in hosting similar wellness clinics to extend essential pet care services across areas.

To gain further insight into Mobile Vaccine Clinics, including future dates and locations, interested individuals can visit monroehumane.org.
