Dogs barked and yelped amid a hive of activity in Santa Ana’s civic center. Cats were there, too. But their presence was more muted, stowed away in carriers. Owners came by the dozens over a few hours on a Saturday morning to take part in a free clinic for the pets of homeless people.
The group HEART and the non-profit Animal Health Foundation provide regular clinics
for the pets of homeless people, such as this recent one in downtown Santa Ana.
