Final Report for Our Project

Despite us not getting anywhere near the amount we needed to raise for our spay and neuter mobile veterinary hospital, we got such a better and more realistic idea of just what it would take to run a mobile clinic.

The $100,000 pre-owned vehicle would be the tip of the iceberg as far as the expenses are concerned. The $100,000 we were trying to raise for this altruistic project would have been just a drop in the bucket in the sea that it costs to run a clinic such as the one we wanted.

The equipment alone would have probably been another $100,000.

We did manage to get a lot of pit bulls and mixes spayed and neutered in an area of the state of California which at the time we were offering this service had very few resources for low cost spay and neuter.

Given the fact that Tia and all her crew were pretty much forced to move out of the state, this original project had to be slightly changed because she was not going to remain in California due to the difficult process of obtaining a kennel license for 200 rescued dogs and running a parolee program at the same time.

The end result of this project is that we learned a lot from this process which will leave us better equipped to possibly start a low cost veterinary clinic someday. The population where Tia and the crew live now are a poor and low income people who love their pets, but can't afford to treat their pets with proper veterinary care.
