CARIBOU, Maine – The Halfway Home Pet Rescue sterilization / sterilization clinic originally scheduled for this week has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns in southern Maine.

The new clinic will take place in the games room of the Caribou Wellness Center on Friday January 14; Saturday January 15; and Sunday January 16. People have to wear masks and wait in their cars to be called to the center. Only three people can be inside at a time for distancing reasons.

Dr Beth Sperry, owner of Back Roads Veterinary Services, informed Milton that a vet technician had tested positive and, as a team, they felt the clinic should be postponed.

Each scheduled person will receive a call by next weekend, January 9 or 10, of their chat’s new date and time.

Norma Milton, president of HHPR, said the volunteers were working hard to contact everyone by phone.

“We are doing our best because public safety is our top priority,” Milton said. “We hope that our candidates at the clinic will be patient and realize that public health safety is mandatory.”

The clinic is free, but donations are appreciated. Cats will receive sterilization, rabies and distemper vaccinations, pest control, ear cleaning, dental check-up and nail trimming.

The January clinic is full, but applications are being accepted for the April clinic.
