Mobile Community Wellness Program, Kivo Mobile Clinic Bring Affordable Pet Care to North Texas

New SPCA of Texas Program Aims to Help Pet Owners Across Metroplex

 

(DALLAS, TX; McKINNEY, TX); October 4, 2019 -This summer, the SPCA of Texas kicked off our new Mobile Community Wellness program with an event offering low-cost vaccines and microchips for over 200 pets! The focus of the program is delivering affordable and accessible basic veterinary services to pets of owners who otherwise may not be able to provide this care for their pets. By offering these mobile services in various locations throughout the Metroplex, we are able to serve more of the most vulnerable pets in our community, and provide essential resources for the people who love them, through our high quality care and affordable pricing across the Metroplex. To learn more, please visit spca.org/mobilewellness.


The Mobile Community Wellness Program is possible thanks to a generous gift from former board member and long-time supporters Stacey and Don Kivowitz. Their passion for animals and North Texas compelled them to help the SPCA of Texas increase their community work by providing the Kivo Mobile Clinic, a 33-foot veterinary clinic on wheels. Using the Kivo Mobile Clinic we are able to provide low-cost vaccinations, microchips, flea/tick/heartworm prevention, and other preventative care for pets in Southern Dallas and beyond.


From the mid-May launch through September, the Kivo Mobile Clinic has hosted 61 events and assisted 3,222 pets.


The Kivo Mobile Clinic visits various locations across the Metroplex each week, reaching new pets and pet owners in need throughout our community. Businesses are able to request the Kivo Mobile at their location to host vaccination events and more!


For more information on the Kivo Mobile Clinic, including a calendar of locations and a request form for businesses looking to host events, visit our website at spca.org/mobilewellness.

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
