In addition to MYSPACE in the Volunteer room, the in-house Veterinary Clinic has gone in. A generous donor combined their funds with the equipment repurposed from the “dying” PAWED Mobile Clinic to create an awesome space in the building here at 6435 Capitol Avenue in Diamond Springs. (Yes if you had not heard we moved to our new location in October, and its really cool.) This is great as the space is bigger and staff are not tripping over one and other and the animals to
get all the spays and neuters done. This space the key to reducing pet overpopulation and treating any number of conditions that arise including ultrasonic scaling of dog and cat teeth to freshen the breath of our canine and feline residents and improve their health.
A super big MEOWZA goes out to lead fixit and fix everything guy “Deputy” Jeff Lee. He runs the
volunteer crew (Donna D., Bill Smith et al. pretty hard though, and they have even had to resort to weight training to keep up and they will hopefully be able to get some much needed rest for muscles and backs now that the majority of it is done and debugged.
It has been a pretty massive project to extract and adapt equipment from the Mobile Clinic and get it up and running in the new space. Check out this great gallery of photos by “Deputy” Donna that shows all the new equipment purchased through the PAWED Finishing Touches campaign and repurposing the Mobile Clinic equipment. They tell me that removing that decal was super tedious work with a heat gun and progress measured in millimeters per hour – it took a really long time to remove.
Anyway this new space is super duper and will serve our community for decades to come.
