“We are excited to serve Roanoke’s Spanish-speaking community in a way that we have not been able to before,” Lisa O’Neill, Executive Director of Angels of Assisi said. “We are grateful to Casa Latina volunteers that will provide translators sot hat we are sure that both the pet owners and the Angels of Assisi staff and veterinarians understand each other completely.”

During the event, organizers said they will offer pet wellness checks for $10, and if need be, staff will schedule procedures, dental appointments, and other necessary surgeries for a future date.

Families and their pets will get appointments with the vets on a first-come, first-served basis, Angels of Assisi said.
