Published by:

From Northshore Humane Society: Woofstock Low Cost Clinic Transformed Due to COVID. Same services available to the community’s beloved canines!!

Now until June 30th, Northshore Humane Society community veterinary clinic is offering low cost vaccines, microchipping and heartworm and flea prevention as part of their annual Woofstock Event! Although the pandemic may have forced the no-kill rescue to change this year’s Woofstock again, you can still take advantage of the same discounted veterinary services you have come to love and depend on!

Annual vaccinations are offered to the public at only $75. Other vaccinations and shots will be available a la carte and microchipping is only $15 per pup! Deeply discounted heartworm and flea prevention will also be available for purchase (while supplies last). 

“Our community vet clinic vaccinated a record number of dogs at last year’s COVID-transformed Woofstock,” said NHS CEO, Scott Bernier. “Because of people working from home and the flexibility of scheduling an appointment through our clinic anytime until June 30th, nearly 1,000 canines took advantage of the low cost services. We are hoping for another successful year with the same COVID-approved procedures available to the public,” he added. 

To take advantage of the discounted pricing, please make an appointment by calling (985) 892-7387 x 3 or emailing clinic@nshumane.org

First fundraiser since the pandemic a success for homeless animals in our community! 

On Monday, January 25th Gallagher’s 527 in Mandeville hosted Fine Wines for Canines, a charity dinner and wine pairing to benefit the homeless animals of Northshore Humane Society. The limited capacity and socially distant evening included a five-course dinner, each course with an exquisite wine pairing. Patrons also took advantage of a cash bar before dinner and bid on several silent auction pieces all to benefit the no-kill rescue and community veterinary clinic.

“This was the first fundraising event since the start of the pandemic so we are extremely grateful for everyone who attended and participated,” said Northshore Humane Society CEO, Scott Bernier. “It was also great to catch up with supporters of our organization who we have not seen (except virtually) for quite some time,” he added.

This evening and future Fine Wines events will not only help the homeless animals of Northshore Humane Society, they will assist local restaurants at this critical time following a pandemic. Keep an eye on the humane society’s website and social pages for upcoming Fine Wines and charity dinner nights in 2021!
