Like people, furry friends need annual checkups to make sure they are healthy, too. On Dec. 5, two nonprofit organizations, Salem’s Light and the Street Dog Coalition, offered a free veterinary clinic for pets at Forest Hill Park. The clinic drew all types and sizes of pets. Shakirah Abdal, listens as veterinarian Dr. Justin Jones details his findings after examining her 12-year-old pit bull terrier, Bella, who was being held by veterinary assistant Rachel Ring. Bella’s follow-up appointment for X-rays and dental care at Dr. Jones’ office will be covered by Salem’s Light, an outreach, education, advocacy and spay and neuter organization.
