CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — A local animal rescue group is asking pet owners not to forget the health of their pets during the current pandemic.

The group People Assisting Animal Control says their clinic on Ayers remains open.

They are offering rabies shots, heart-worm tests, and flea and tick prevention.

With so many people having to stay home from work, they've already seen a big increase in in-clinic visits.

Cheryl Martinez, who is the President for PAAC, said, "Saturday we saw about 60 people, so today we've already seen about 25, they're just coming in, they trickle in, you know we've been seeing more people coming in and they don't mind waiting because they don't have anything else to do."

People will have to wait in their vehicles during their pet's clinic visit.

No office fee will be charged for shots or flea, tick and heart-worm prevention.
