Volunteer Vets for Homeless Pets - 2/28/13 UPDATE!
Volunteer Vets for Homeless Pets is a program where every two weeks a local vet comes to UPAWS to check out the animals waiting for adoption. This will help the homeless pets of UPAWS get the medical attention they need and provide UPAWS with a cost saving service.

Volunteer Vet Dr. Palo from the Gwinn Saywer Vet Clinic paid the pets at UPAWS a visit on Thursday! Thank you Dr. Palo - because of you the pets at UPAWS got a little extra TLC and the care they deserve. We love our local Veterinarians and we appreciate the extra mile they go for UPAWS
We had a visit from a volunteer Vet yesterday! Thank you to Dr. Hunt of Bayshore Vet Hospital. Dr. Hunt spent some time with a few of our animals, getting them in tip-top shape! He also took Molly back to his clinic for a recheck on her eye. Thank you so much Dr. Hunt for giving a little extra to the homeless pets!
Dr. Rauch from Negaunee Vet Clinic stopped by today to volunteer. He was an amazing help and came at just the right time! Last night we had seven cats and kittens dropped off, hungry, dehydrated, eyes infected, ears infected and anemic, they were badly in need of a little extra attention, so we felt very lucky to have Dr. Rauch here at UPAWS today to give these sweet babies the care they needed. Dr. Rauch was also able to look at Scarla, Justice, Velvet, Storm, Sonny and Cass. Thank you thank you thank you Dr. Rauch!
Thank you Dr. Brauer for visiting UPAWS today for another Volunteer Vet Visit. Dr. Brauer was able to visit with 8 animals for health and wellness checks.
