Free Pet Checks at Penrith Homelessness Hub
In conjunction with the RSPCA, Coreen Ave Veterinary Clinic offered its services to clients at the Penrith Homelessness Hub.
People experiencing homelessness, sleeping rough or couch surfing were invited to a Homeless Hub held at The Joan Sutherland Centre in November 2014. A free barbecue breakfast was provided by Christ Mission Possible and a range of local services were available for people in need to access including food, clothing and hygiene items.
Nurse Kellie and Dr Christie vaccinated and health checked pets presented on the day and with the assistance of the RSPCA arranged desexing and follow-up assistance.
