Voorhees – N.J. — Animal Welfare Association (AWA) will hold its last Vets on Wheels at Yorkship Square in Fairview, Camden on March 27th from 3pm to 5pm before moving to a new location in eastern Camden.
AWA’s Vets on Wheels program works in underserved communities to deliver a variety of pet care outreach services.
Vets on Wheels events are open to all – you do not have to be a resident of that neighborhood. “By going out into the community, AWA is able to have a direct, positive impact on pet owners who are unable to access pet care resources for a variety of reasons,” says Freeholder Jonathan Young.
Pet owners will have access to vaccinations, examinations, help with minor medical conditions, as well as the opportunity to make appointments for low cost spay/neuter surgeries.
“AWA is grateful to the Camden County Freeholder Board for supporting Vets on Wheels in the City of Camden. This partnership makes it possible for pet owners to keep their pets healthy,” says AWA’s Executive Director, Maya Richmond.
All future 2019 dates will be held at Von Nieda Park, located between 29th Street, Harrison Street and Arthur Avenue. These dates include April 24th (4pm to 6pm), May 29th (4pm to 6pm), June 26th (4pm to 6pm), September 25th (4pm to 6pm), October 30th (3pm to 5pm) and November 20th (3pm to 5pm).
