Actress Carolyn Hennesy and celebrity veterinary surgeon Dr. Karen “Doc” Halligan, who began the new year by riding into the Guinness Book of World Records aboard Lucy Pet Products’ Rose Parade float, will wrap up the month of January by helping to put dogs and cats on the road to a better future aboard the Lucy Pet Foundation Mobile Spay and Neuter Bus.
On January 31st Hennesy, who television viewers will know from General Hospital, Gilmore Girls and True Blood, will scrub up and step into the role of observer as Dr. Halligan performs spay/neuter procedures at Pacoima Shopping Center, located at 9801 Laurel Canyon Boulevard in Los Angeles.
An undertaking in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Animal Services, operations from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. will be performed at no cost. A low-cost vaccine clinic will also be offered from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
“I can’t tell you what a thrill it is for me to be part of the activities that take place aboard the Lucy Pet Foundation mobile spay and neuter bus,” the star stated. “Working with a skilled veterinary surgeon to see how these spay/neuter procedures are done and how much they help in preventing pet overpopulation will be a once in a lifetime experience. I’m really looking forward to it.”
“It’s always exciting for me to show how effective the Lucy Pet Foundation’s no cost mobile spay and neuter bus is in helping to prevent pet overpopulation by providing services to pet owners that might not regularly be able to afford them. I’m really looking forward to working together with Carolyn who has such a deep appreciation and love of animals,” said Karen Halligan D.V.M. and Lucy Pet Foundation’s Chief Veterinary Officer. The award-winning author of Doc Halligan’s What Every Pet Owner Should Know: Prescriptions for Happy, Healthy Cats and Dogs appears regularly on TV shows The Doctors, Live with Kelly Ripa, The Today Show, Fox & Friends, and The KTLA Morning News for “Ask the Doc.”
In 2016 alone, the Lucy Pet Foundation mobile clinic provided spay/neuter services to more than 4,000 companion animals in need. A non-profit registered animal charity, the Lucy Pet Foundation has a driving passion to lower the sobering statistic of more than 80,000 dogs and cats who lose their lives each week in the US shelter system, and is on a mission to place a spay/neuter and adoption mobile clinic in every major city from coast to coast.
