More details from the related email:

The San Francisco SPCA Veterinary Hospital regularly assists San Francisco residents who are experiencing medical emergencies with their pets. The diagnosis and treatment of canine parvovirus is a common urgent care case.  Parvovirus is a very serious canine disease that makes the individual animal very ill.  The virus is highly contagious (poses a canine public health concern) and is very costly to treat.  The good news is that this disease is very preventable! The DHP (Distemper Hepatitis Parvovirus) vaccine, if properly administered, immunizes the individual canine patient against parvovirus, and, in most cases, is highly effective in preventing infection.  We’ve collected and examined data, and observed that the majority of parvovirus care cases that we see are generated in the 94124 zip code (Bayview / Hunters Point). The goal of our mobile vaccine clinic is to provide accessible preventive care services for this specific canine population and their human owners.

People’s Earth Day in the Bayview on Sunday, April 18th

The first of two Bayview Sunday Streets is coming up next Sunday, April 18th from 10am – 3pm.  The route for the event will start at AT&T Park and go down Terry Francois Blvd until Mariposa Street and then follow Third Street (northbound lane only) all the way down to MLK Park (3rd and Armstrong). Please see the map to the left for details.

Although this is the official route of the event, there will be an offshoot to the event well worth checking out sponsored by the Bayview’s own environmental advocacy organization, Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ).  The event will be held at the end of Cargo Way at Heron’s Head Park and will be a celebration of the brand new, 100% off-the-grid eco-center located at the entrance of the park.  Activities at the LEJ-sponsored “People’s Earth Day” event include music, entertainment, food, bird-watching tours, and much more.  See the poster below for more details.
