KHS ‘CARE-a-van’ mobile vet clinic brings low-cost pet care to Louisville communities | Community

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A new partnership is bringing pet care to low-income communities in Louisville.

The Kentucky Humane Society’s “CARE-A-Van” is a mobile veterinary clinic that provides low-cost pet wellness services to cats and dogs. 

Low-cost services available include microchipping, flea and tick preventatives, nail trims, heartworm tests and shots, such as rabies and Bordetella. 

The clinic was set up at the Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center on Monday, and will be back on Tuesday. KHS will set up the clinic in the city’s west end two days each month, but is set up in different communities throughout the area each week.

“A lot of communities lack access to affordable pet care,” said Sara Brown-Meehan, with KHS. “So we can bring these caravans into these communities so that they can get the pet services they need.”

The mobile clinic runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Services are available by appointment only.
