In partnership with the Guelph Veterinary Outreach Program, SHOW facilitates free vet clinics for those in our community who are marginalized by poverty or other barriers to accessing care for their pets. The clinics happen four times per year in space donated by The School of Social Work, and a small army of veterinary students and veterinarians provide free examinations and vaccinations for up to 25 pets. In attendance at the clinics are staff from Region of Waterloo Public Health who are available to provide free flu shots, health information and other supports, as well as volunteer drivers to assist our pets and their owners to access the clinic. For many whom we serve through these clinics, their pet is their closest friend and companion and assisting to improve the health of the pets can, in turn, improve the health of their owners.
