CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — National nonprofit Petco Love is partnering with People Assisting Animal Control to host their free vaccine event, “Give Pets Their Best Shot.”
Petco Love and PAAC plan to vaccinate 50 cats at this event on Friday, April 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the clinic at 5804 Ayers Street.
The event will be first come, first served and it will be walk-in only, no appointment is necessary.
PAAC’s Cheryl Martinez said this event is for cats only, but they have a low-cost clinic that provides low-cost services for all animals.
As the season of contagious and fatal diseases for cats approaches, the VIP aims to prevent all diseases.
Exposure to disease is preventable with a simple vaccine.
The vaccines distributed under the Petco Love initiative will be HCP Feline vaccines. The PAAC will provide free rabies vaccines to cats at this event.
Some of these vaccines are expensive, and the Give Pets Their Best Shots event focuses on providing these vaccines for free to prevent disease for those who are experiencing financial hardship.
“Treating these deadly diseases can be prohibitively expensive for many pet owners,” Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love, said in a statement.
Petco Love encourages pet owners to keep their furry friends up to date on vaccinations.
Kogut said, “By providing free vaccines to those who need them, we can help these animals lead healthy lives. »
The two nonprofit organizations work together to keep pets and their families together and healthy.
“Through this national effort and our other Petco Love Care initiatives, we are continuing our 22-year history of strategic investments and innovation to end unnecessary pet euthanasia,” Kogut added.
On Saturday, April 30, PAAC will also host a free food event. They will be providing customers with free pet food from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. while supplies last.
