More Information & Frequently Asked Questions
Who can attend this clinic? This clinic is meant to serve Norwich Senior Citizens (65 and older) who may not have access to veterinary care for their beloved pets due to financial reasons. Since there is a limited amount of appointments and because we are trying to serve as many families and pets as possible, if you’ve attended a Norwich Pet Wellness Clinic in the past, you will be put on a “Reserve List” and notified if there are any open appointments in mid-April.
What is the cost of bringing my pet(s) to this clinic? This clinic is FREE! Funding is provided by the Letz Fund for Animals and the Environment (Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut), PetSmart Charities, Chelsea Groton Bank, Charter Oak Federal Credit Union and the CT Humane Society.
What are the services provided to pets at this clinic? Each pet seen by our vet will get a general wellness exam, rabies and distemper vaccinations (as needed), a flea/tick preventative, dewormer (as needed), and their nails trimmed. Additionally, dogs will get tested for heartworm. Pet food and supplies are available as well. Residents of Norwich will have the option of licensing their dog, free of charge, after pets receive the required rabies vaccine.
Is there a limit to the number of pets or type of pet I bring? We can see up to 2 pets per family in a single visit. Only dogs or cats will be seen. All dogs must be leashed and all cats must be in carriers. We reserve the right to refuse sick, pregnant, or aggressive pets.
Do I need an appointment to have my pet(s) seen? Yes. Appointments are needed. Starting March 18th Please call Elizabeth at (860) 594-4502 x6306 to make an appointment for the April 24th Norwich Pet Wellness Clinic. Visits with the veterinarian will typically take about 10-15 minutes for each pet. Expect there to be a short wait time. Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Where is the clinic held? The clinic will be held at the Rose City Senior Center (Art Room). There will be signs to point you in the right direction.
Do I need to bring any paperwork to show my proof of need? No. We do not screen for financial need.
Do I need to bring anything other than my pet(s)? If your pet has been previously seen by another veterinarian, please bring any records you have.
