In an effort to control pet overpopulation on Oahu, the city is supporting a local animal non-profit’s mobile idea.
The group Poi Dogs and Popoki was given a $180,000 grant by the city to launch “The Big Fix,” a mobile pet clinic that provides spay and neuter surgeries at a low cost to pet owners.
“People in under-served communities often lack transportation service to get their pets to the vet,” explained Alicia Maluafiti of Poi Dogs and Popoki. “The vehicle allows us to take the services directly to them.”
The 26-foot-long mobile clinic will be staffed by licensed veterinarians and can accommodate up to 35 cat and 12 dog surgeries a day.
