Over the course of the past week, 1,124 animals were checked in and examined by a veterinarian. Approximately 10% of the animals required some form of veterinary care, either provided on site or at veterinary practices in the Edmonton area. 725 animals have been reunited with their owners and 169 animals are scheduled for reunion in the next 24 hours. The remainder will be housed in temporary care until reunited with their owners.
