On Saturday, May 15, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) hosted its first, physically distant Pets & People Community Wellness Event at the Ruby Tucker Family Center. Following the One Health approach of community care, this event was created to assist not only animals but also people across the City of Alexandria. The event, which ran from 10 a.m. to noon, provided goods and services to dozens of area families. According to Alexandria Gazette Packet, "A majority of the attendees came to the event for assistance with pets, and nearly 90 vaccinations were given to combat rabies, parvovirus and distemper, dangerous viruses that could cause discomfort and even death in animals. Twenty-four dogs and cats also received basic grooming and nail trimming by local business Pawsh Dog Wash. Behavioral advice, pet food and other supplies were available for all attendees." As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Pre-registration was not required, and while the AWLA worked to make sure the event observed best health practices, including requiring masks and physical distancing, they welcomed a record number of families, greater than any of the previous Pet Care Fairs they had offered at the Ruby Tucker Family Center. While many attendees were there for animal-related services, some came solely for the human services, which was part of the goal for this event."
