GHHS CEO, Spencer Batcheller initiated GHHS Community Day in 2020 to support pet-owning residents in the community that were experiencing financial distress. Batcheller stated, “Offering a low-cost resource day promotes pet wellness and education in our community.” He further explained, “Surrendering a pet often comes from financial uncertainty and if we can support pet needs, pets remain at home with their families and out of area shelters.”
- Chip-a-thon: Microchips will be for $15, per pet.
- Pet Wellness Clinic: Rocket City Veterinary Hospital will be offering discounted routine pet care including vaccines and preventatives.
- Spay & Neuter Opportunities: Vouchers will be available through GHHS to schedule spay and neuter surgeries at partnering veterinary clinics.
