Local residents bringing back AnimalSave clinic van

Western Nevada County resident Karyl Marlow and her son, Philip Marlow, are on their way back from Gehanna, Ohio, where they picked up a new van for mobile spay and neuter services.

The mobile clinic, bought by the local nonprofit AnimalSave, should arrive Wednesday or Thursday next week, AnimalSave President John Bush said Friday.

The Marlows flew into Port Columbus International Airport on Wednesday, picked up the van and began their drive back to Grass Valley the next day, Bush said.

AnimalSave is covering the Marlows’ travel expenses and will save more than $2,000 by not having the van delivered by the manufacturer, Bush said.

Philip Marlow studies photojournalism at Sierra College and plans to pursue a career in photography. He hopes to record the journey and post updates at http://www.TheUnion.com.

Karyl Marlow is a private pilot and long-distance road traveler. “I’ve logged over 30,000 miles driving our 27-foot motorhome around the United States. I’m sure this trip will be very enjoyable,” she said.
