This Sunday, June 14, El Paso Animal Services and its community partners will be offering free vaccinations and microchips to hundreds of pets at the department’s second-ever Drive-Thru Vaccination/Microchip Clinic sponsored by PetSmart Charities.
This unique large-scale clinic aims at making it easy for owners to keep their pets healthy and safe. The clinic will be held at the Socorro Activities Complex, in the parking lot. The only entrance to the clinic will be located south of the SAC, through Southview Drive. All attendees are required to wear a mask or face covering.
This is a first-come, first-served event and services are limited to the first 500 pets. Owners will need to keep their pets in the vehicle, all dogs must be on a leash and cats must be placed in a secure carrier while visiting the clinic. Dogs will receive a parvo/distemper vaccination, while cats will receive a feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia (FVRCP) vaccination, both will also be given a microchip and a gallon-bag of food per pet. No other vaccinations will be available at this drive-thru event.
Temperatures are expected to rise later in the day, so attendees are encouraged to bring plenty of water for their pets and themselves to stay cool.
