The SICSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center (SICSA) is once again taking their veterinary clinic on the road to serve pet owners in need. This time, they are headed to Kettering. On Friday November 10, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., SICSA will hold one of their Community Veterinary Care programs at SICSA’s former location; 2600 Wilmington Pike, Kettering, OH 45419.
“SICSA isn’t limited geographically and therefore, has many clients, donors, and volunteers from all over Montgomery County and other communities. This is our fifth and last clinic to be held this year,” said Jack Omer, President, and CEO of SICSA. “These clinics are supported by the generosity of so many organizations; the Houtz Family Foundation, the Community Foundation for Kettering, Banfield Foundation, Levin Family Foundation, the Charles D. Berry Foundation, and Petco Love. A family’s address and socioeconomic status should not be a barrier to basic wellness care for their beloved pet. Our vet clinics are held in the community, in areas of greatest need,” said Omer.
SICSA’s Community Veterinary Care (CVC) program identifies neighborhoods in the region considered to be most in need. SICSA then sets up a veterinary clinic where, for a fee of just $20, dogs and cats can receive a nose to tail assessment by a licensed veterinarian, vaccinations, flea control, deworming treatments, and even medications for some conditions right on site. In addition to veterinary care, SICSA’s Help Center team is also on-site providing information and resources about their pet food and supplies assistance, behavioral supports and more. For additional pet needs, SICSA offers follow-up services at their center in Washington Township, which includes spays and neuters, mass removals, radiographs, dentals, and more – all based upon income and on a sliding fee.
“Appointments and payments are required in advance and slots fill quickly because the need is real,” said Omer. “We are so thankful our community partners help us identify those most in need.”
