THE WOODLANDS, TX – Operation Pets Alive is partnering with the national nonprofit Petco Love to give pets their best shot at healthy living by hosting a free pet vaccination event on May 29, 2022.
In an effort to encourage pet owners to keep their pets up to date on vaccinations, Petco Love will provide free pet vaccinations to Operation Pets Alive for family pets in need. As puppy and kitten season approaches, pets’ exposure to contagious and deadly diseases (parvovirus, distemper, and panleukopenia) increases, but it can be prevented with a simple vaccine.
Operation Pets Alive has partnered with Rockin’ Pets, Rollin’ Vets to host the free vaccination event. Together, they aim to vaccinate 300 pets through this effort. The free vaccination event will take place on May 29, 2022, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm at First Methodist Conroe at 4308 W. Davis Street in Conroe, Texas. Vaccinations will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be the DAPP Canine and FVRCP Feline vaccines. The event is also sponsored by Fi Nano, which allows up to 300 animals to be microchipped.
“Thanks to Petco Love, we are able to offer these important vaccines at no cost to pet owners,” said Sue Woody, vice president of Operation Pets Alive. “We urge community members to take advantage of this free resource to help reduce the spread of disease and ensure the health and well-being of pets in our community.”
The Give Pets Their Best Shot initiative makes crucial pet vaccines accessible to pet owners who may be experiencing financial challenges and ensures that cost is not a barrier to protecting pets from preventable diseases.
“Treating these deadly diseases can be prohibitively expensive for many pet owners,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “By providing free vaccinations to those who need them, we can help these pets live healthy lives. Through this national effort and our other Petco Love Care initiatives, we continue our 22-year history of strategic investment and innovation to end the unnecessary euthanasia of pets.”
National Pet Vaccination Month is a continuation of Petco Love’s 1 Million Pets Free Vaccination campaign, which has helped 400,000 pets to date. Fifty percent of pet parents surveyed reported that their pets had never been vaccinated against these diseases. With the Bissell Pet Foundation as an additional partner this month, Petco Love’s goal is to increase awareness and accelerate vaccine distribution.
