Rescue to offer dog and cat clinics

CARIBOU, Maine — Halfway Home Pet Rescue will offer a low-cost care and vaccination clinic for dogs and cats, along with a free cat spay/neuter clinic, in late April.

Low-cost basic care and vaccinations for both dogs and cats will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 2 pm. on Wednesday, April 27, at the HHPR adoption center, 489 Main St. in Caribou.

No appointment is necessary for this first-come/first-served clinic. Care will be provided by Beth Sperry, DVM, of Back Roads Mobile Vet Services of Portland.  

The rescue is offering the clinic because of the extremely short supply of available vet care in The County, said the facility’s director, Norma Milton.

The pet rescue will also offer another in its series of free cat spay and neuter clinics on Thursday, April 28, Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30. Sperry will provide the surgical care.

Sponsors of the clinic, to be held at the Caribou Wellness Center, are Halfway Home Pet Rescue, the Elmina B. Sewall Foundation and the Maine Community Foundation Aroostook County Fund.  

This clinic is for all cats. Spaces are limited so early application is a must, Milton said. Applications and further information are available at

Donations are appreciated but are not required.
