Transient Outreach Program

In partnership with Bloomington Police Department, The Monroe County Humane Association visits various transient-dense facilities and encampments in the area each month. This is part of an effort to provide accessible veterinary wellness care to pets belonging to our transient residents of Monroe County.

Services provided include basic vaccinations for dogs and cats; as well as flea prevention, de-wormer, nail trims, and general exams.

Participating pet-owners must present identification and proof of residency if residing at Kinser Flats or Crawford Apartments.

Otherwise, participants must be truly unhoused to receive access to transient outreach services.

Outreach Day Schedule:

This schedule stays the same every month.
11:00am – Kinser Flats
12:00pm – Shalom Center
1:00pm – Crawford Apartments
2:00pm – Country View Apartments
3:00pm – Encampments 
(specific encampment destinations TBD on a month-to-month basis)
