Cape Coral Animal Shelter to open low-cost clinic for a day to serve pet owners
Cape Coral Animal Shelter will look to help pet owners during the coronavirus pandemic when it opens its low-cost veterinary clinic Monday.
This is the single day confirmed by the shelter that its clinic will be open to the public, but it said announcements will be made for future service dates.
“We realize there are many pet owners in need of basic veterinary care for their beloved pets at this time, and it is our mission to serve the animals of Southwest Florida,” the shelter announced.
Anyone in need of basic veterinary care for their pet, such as a wellness check, vaccines, heartworm and flea preventative, can visit the shelter in Cape Coral at 325 SW 2nd Ave., near Sun Splash Waterpark.
Instructions for visiting the clinic include the following: “Once you sign in, please return to your car and we will text you when we are able to see your pet. One patient with one owner will be allowed in our clinic at a time. We will be following all necessary CDC protocol for the safety of you and our staff, including proper sanitization between each guest.”
The shelter is also asking visitors to head toward the right side of the building when they show up to sign in.
The shelter will provide services from noon to 5 p.m. The sign-up sheet will be available at 11:30 a.m.
