This visit will also include a vaccinations clinic, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Please note that the outreach is only available for residents of Lake Elsinore and Lakeland Village.

The mobile spay and neuter bus, nicknamed “The Answer on Wheels,” recently received some necessary repairs thanks to donated funding by the Animal Solutions Konnection Foundation. The ASK Foundation provided $8,000 to help repair a water tank that is vital to the operations of the mobile clinic.

“We want to express our extreme gratitude to the ASK Foundation for helping us get the bus back to its high level of service and for helping us provide these valuable resources to our communities,” Dr. Allan Drusys, the county’s chief veterinarian, said. “These outreaches are extremely important in the overall mission to reduce pet overpopulation, so we’re very thankful for the funding assistance by the ASK Foundation.”
