CARE4Paws continues to help Central Coast families look after their pets | local news

Locals lined up with their pets for an affordable pop-up veterinary hospital Wednesday to get the services and information they needed for their furry friends.

The CARE4Paws mobile unit is based at the Elwin Mussell Senior Center in Santa Maria – the unit has been helping families and their pets on the Central Coast for about 10 years and the program continues to grow.

“Our primary goal is to reduce pet overpopulation and promote responsible pet ownership in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties,” said Carlos Abitia, Mobile Services Coordinator for CARE4Paws. “We do this by promoting free spaying and neutering. This year we have almost 2,000 neutered and neutered and we treat about 10,000 animals to low-income pet families.”
