LOCKLAND, Ohio (WKRC) - A local animal clinic with a special mission celebrated a milestone Sunday.

Pets in Need of Greater Cincinnati offers low-cost veterinary care for pets living in low-income homes. In honor of their fifth anniversary, they hosted an open house Sunday.

The open house ran from noon to 3 p.m. They had food, birthday cake, beer, wine and soft drinks, as well as live music, split-the-pot and raffles.

Executive Director Ann Ramsey Hill said it's incredible to see how far the clinic has come in five years. They serve the Tri-State area, but there are no geographic restrictions on who can get treatment for their pets.

The clinic offers basic wellness services for cats and dogs, treating minor health issues like skin, ear and eye problems. They also can refer you to private veterinary practices they partner with if your pet has an issue they can't treat.

To qualify for income assistance, you have to be at or below 150 percent of the federal income poverty level. Hill says you can come into the clinic with proof of you income, apply, receive an ID and then begin scheduling visits.

Pets in Need is located at 520 W. Wyoming Avenue in Lockland. Click here to learn more.
