What is a MASH Clinic?
A MASH clinic is a temporary spay or neuter clinic we set up for 1 – 5 days. We find a location in a community we want to target for spaying and neutering. Baark! learned our skills of putting together MASH clinics from Animal Balance.
There are great benefits of hosting MASH Clinics.
1. Connection with the community
The greatest benefit of a MASH clinic is our close connection to the community. The local children come around and help out making it one of the best education opportunities.
2. High Volume
The temporary clinic is set up as a well oiled assembly line. The veterinarians are able to focus solely on surgery while volunteers gather, prep, recover and return the dogs and cats.
3. Easily accessible for pet owners
People are able to walk their dogs and cats to the clinic and we are able to quickly gather pets in the neighbourhood so not a lot of time is wasted on driving.
Local veterinarians and volunteers. We typically plan our MASH clinics 3 months out so if you wish to volunteer please email firstname.lastname@example.org
