(KTVZ) -- Street Dog Hero, a Bend-based animal welfare nonprofit, teamed up with Central Oregon veterinarians Dr. Cierra Buer and Dr. Tabitha Johnson, as well as Fences For Fido, Warm Springs Fire and Safety, and volunteers from all over Oregon to host a wellness and vaccine clinic in Warm Springs on Saturday, August 13th.

This clinic provided free physical exams, vaccinations, flea and tick medications, treatment for minor wounds and infections (like cheatgrass), and prescription medications to 86 dogs and cats owned by members of the Warm Springs community.

On the same day, Fences for Fido hosted a pet food bank - providing free food for community pets - and Street Dog Hero took in 15 surrendered puppies and dogs, including a nursing mother dog and her pups. These dogs will be available for adoption soon. All of Street Dog Hero’s adoptable dogs can be found on their website www.streetdoghero.org.
