Save Ohio Pets teamed up with the Rascal Unit in February to help more family pets in the Columbus area. The Tortorella Foundation helped sponsor the event that had 46 on site spay and neuters, 56 pets vaccinated and micro-chipped. Another 20 were spayed days later with the help of Columbus Humane.
Hannah and Brad Larsen, Diana Davidson and John and Christine Tortorella of the Columbus Blue Jackets were all on site to support the cause in different ways.
Hannah Larsen, who volunteers regularly for Save Ohio Pets, spent the day grooming the animals that came in.
Diana Davidson stayed very busy talking to pet owners, bringing the animals to and from spay and neuter procedures, helping with records and paperwork and comforting the
post-surgical pets. Davidson is married to John Davidson, the President of Hockey Operations for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
So many volunteers are necessary for a successful event like this, including veterinarians, groomers, vet techs and loving, comforting arms.
