HOW ACCESS TO VETERINARY CARE IS BEING EXPANDED IN NEVADA

How access to veterinary care is being expanded in Nevada

No one should miss out on veterinary care for their beloved cat or dog simply because they live in an underserved area, whether that’s rural, tribal, or low-income urban. Limited access to veterinary care for financial or geographic reasons is also behind many pet owners feeling compelled to surrender their animals and why stray and feral populations often get out of control.

Maddie's® Pet Project in Nevada is working to improve such access by partnering with – and, when appropriate, providing funding to – shelters, rescue groups, private veterinarians, and government agencies. The intent is to support these organizations in such a way that over the long-term, they are able to develop sustainable:

•Low-cost and free spay-neuter clinics. •Low-cost and free vaccination clinics. •Mobile and MASH-style clinics that can travel to underserved rural, tribal, and low-income urban areas for spay-neuter and vaccinations.
