Story By Shardaa Gray


RHINELANDER - You usually take your pets to a stationed pet clinic to get them spayed or neutered.

But a traveling clinic gave people a chance to take care of their pets.

More than 15 cats and dogs got spayed and neutered at the Crescent Fire Department.

They opened their doors for The Fix Is In.

The clinic packs up their equipment in a minivan and travels to different locations in the Northwoods.

They're the only traveling pet clinic in the Northwoods.

It started June last year.

"We wanted to be able to provide the service in a broad area. We wanted to be able to go to several different locations." said clinic manager, Ashley McLaughlin.

If you would like to make an appointment or have them come to your town, just visit their website.
