Scouts Street Smart Rescue goes mobile
AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) – Amarillo has a new nonprofit animal rescue organization, and now it’s gone mobile.
Wendy Patterson is the founder of Scouts Street Smart Rescue, a non-profit organization that goes mobile.
Patterson’s passion for animals and community is what started it all; a few months ago, she and her mother opened pop-up clinics across the city to provide microchips, pet tags and low-cost parvo vaccines.
But she saw the greatest need, those who couldn’t get to their vet due to health or schedule differences.
Today, Patterson provides a variety of services:
- Microchips and microchip scanning
- Veterinary taxiing (help those who cannot take their animal to the vet)
- Pet Tags (technology in a tag, scannable by phone that will immediately call the owner)
- and will now be able to come directly to you
Over the next month, Scouts Street Smart Rescue will be able to provide more vaccines like Bordetella and begin treating cats.
“It’s nice to have someone give you a hug at the end and say ‘I couldn’t have done that’. I want to go help the dogs and I want to help people and their dogs” , says Patterson.
Patterson hopes to continue to grow the non-profit organization and help the community and their pets.
She says: “To sit there and know that a little shot will stop them hurting, or a microchip or a Scout tag, can help get those puppies where they need to be, it’s amazing. It’s about dogs and people.
The rescue website is in preparation and will be available on Facebook as soon as possible.
