Dr. Michelle Gonzalez has an office in Dublin but she sees patients all over the state. In March, Gonzalez began operating RASCAL, a surgical animal hospital on wheels. Since the first clinic last April, Gonzalez has sterilized about 3,500 cats and dogs. She goes to places where residents don’t make much money or where there’s a shortage of veterinary care.
Thousands of Central Ohioans routinely take care of stray cats and dogs. They volunteer at shelters, provide foster care in their homes, take food and water to feral animals. Then there are those who trap unadoptable strays, have them sterilized, and return them to the places they came from. It’s called TNR; Trap, Neuter, Return.
