Animal Services Set to Welcome Drive-Thru Clinic and Offer Free Pet Services

This Saturday, August 21, El Paso Animal Services and its community partners will be offering free pet vaccines and microchips to hundreds of animals through a substantial Drive-Through Pet Wellness Clinic.

Sponsored by the BISSELL Pet Foundation, this large-scale clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 301 George Perry Boulevard. The clinic aims to help owners keep their pets healthy and safe.

The event is first come, first served and limited to the first 500 animals. Pets must remain in the vehicle; all dogs must be on a leash and cats must be placed in a secure carrier when visiting the drive-thru clinic.

Dogs will receive a distemper vaccine, while cats will receive a vaccine for feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia (FVRCP), both will also be microchipped.

Pets must be six weeks of age or older to receive vaccines. No other pet vaccines will be available at this drive-in event.

Organizers add that 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.
