Noah's Bark at 36th and Center opened its doors as a one-stop dog care clinic on Saturday.
While most waited outside for their turn inside, the animals could get any number of shots and owners could license their pets at the same time. The care was provided by veterinarians at a reduced cost. The space is borrowed from the doggie day care.
Rick Wise says, "We think that it is important that they get the shots that they need and many times they can't afford to do it, especially if they have multiple pets, so this makes it more convenient for them to get it done in a timely manner."
Wise says Noah's Bark provides the service on a monthly basis and usually sees about 100 dogs. This time, he expected to see three times that many animals because of the approaching licensing deadline on March 15th.
