Pets for Life Program in Bridgeport
Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic is now an official mentorship for the Humane Society of the United States Pets for Life (PFL) Program. PFL provides access to free veterinary care, services and information to people and pets in underserved communities with limited or nonexistent access to pet wellness resources. PFL takes a comprehensive, long-term approach to address the inequity in and lack of access to pet resources people experience in underserved communities through door-to-door engagement and pet owner support services. Nutmeg Clinic’s current focus area is the Bridgeport zip code of 06608.
The initiative’s philosophy promotes the understanding that lack of financial means does not equate to a lack of love felt for or provided to the pet. Every life can be enhanced by a pet, and those who choose to should have the opportunity to experience the unconditional love and meaningful relationship that a pet brings. Investment in preventative programming is not only less stressful for pets by keeping them in their homes and out of a shelter environment, but also more cost-effective than taking, housing and rehoming.
Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
