Care First Animal Hospital has made a $600 donation to pay for the animal waste bags loaded in  neighborhood dispensers  by UPHA volunteers.  Next time you see a  dog walker with a plastic bag in hand,  have a good thought not only for a considerate neighbor, but also for a public-spirited local business.

The so-called “doggie bag” project is a key element in keeping this pet-loving neighborhood a low-risk area for unwelcome surprises on shoes. Although contributions of money and newspaper delivery bags have helped keep the  11 dispensers stocked,  it has at times been difficult to keep supplying the demand. The dispensers are maintained by  community  volunteers.

Care First Animal Hospital, at 1016 Oberlin Rd.,  has served the UPHA community  for 26 years.  Their generous donation will make possible almost a year’s supply of bags.  Thank you, Care First !

The doggie bag donation is part of what Care First Animal Hospital’s director, Dr. Joe Gordon, describes as “a strong community service background.” Also, he said, ” picking up dog waste  helps prevent helps prevent the spread of intestinal parasites and worms.”

Care First Animal Hospital promotes events for the SPCA, participates in a spay-neuter program, and has a adoption program for cats. Visitors to the clinic can often see the cats on display in the waiting room, hoping to be “homed.”
