January 27, 2017

Carolyn Hennesy, Emmy-nominated TV actress and New York Times best-selling author, will shadow veterinary surgeon Karen “Doc” Halligan on Tuesday, January 31, at the Pacoima Shopping Center during spay/neuter operations performed aboard the Lucy Pet Foundation Mobile Spay and Neuter Bus. The spay/neuter operations, in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Animal Services, are provided at no cost and will be performed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST. A low-cost vaccine clinic will also be offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PST.

The Lucy Pet Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) registered animal charity with the mission to reduce pet overpopulation using mobile slucy petpay/neuter clinics across the country. Its goal is to reduce the euthanasia of more than 80,000 cats and dogs per week across the United States.

I can’t tell you what a thrill it is for me to be part of the activities that take place aboard the Lucy Pet Foundation mobile spay and neuter bus,” Hennesy said. Working with a skilled veterinary surgeon to see how these spay/neuter procedures are done and how much they help in preventing pet overpopulation will be a once in a lifetime experience. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Dr. Halligan, Lucy Pet Foundation’s chief veterinary officer, is the award-winning author of “Doc Halligan’s What Every Pet Owner Should Know: Prescriptions for Happy, Healthy Cats and Dogs.” She appears regularly on TV shows “The Doctors,” “Live with Kelly,” “Today Show,” “Fox & Friends” and “The KTLA Morning News” for “Ask the Doc.”

“It’s always exciting for me to show how effective the Lucy Pet Foundation’s no cost mobile spay and neuter bus is in helping to prevent pet overpopulation by providing services to pet owners that might not regularly be able to afford them,” Halligan said. “I’m really looking forward to working together with Carolyn who has such a deep appreciation and love of animals.”
