WHO WE ARE

RESPONDING TO COVID

To reduce risk to volunteers and clients Vet SOS has moved from large drop-in clinics to more frequent, smaller clinics where visits are by appointment only. All clinics are held outdoors, masks are required (N95s and face shields are offered to volunteers), and physical distancing is practiced between clients and volunteers.
