After vaccinating nearly 700 pets in Tucson, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona is back at it, helping pets and the people who love them with another community vaccination clinic for dogs.
The HSSA will hold its fourth mobile vaccination clinic from 7-9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, at El Rio Health Center, 340 W. Prince Road. Dogs can get a DAPP (Distemper/Adenovirus/
Parainfluenza/Parvovirus) vaccination free of cost, a rabies vaccination for $13 and microchip for $15. Only cash will be accepted. This clinic will be for dogs only.
The mobile clinic will also go hand-in-hand with HSSA’s preventive relief efforts. As part of theFix It, Tucson! Initiative, now through June 30, 2015, the HSSA will spay or neuter and vaccinate about 1,300 dogs in the 85705 area for free, in collaboration with PetSmart Charities. Owners must show proof of ZIP code residence at the time of spay/neuter appointment. Appointments can be made at the mobile vaccination clinic, which is in the heart of the 85705 area.
There will be tents set up to provide ample shade for you and your dog, and water bowls to keep your pup hydrated.
Special thanks to Dr. Anna Szivek from Veterinary Specialty Center of Tucson and Dr. Karen C. McWhirter for volunteering their time to help the HSSA protect our community.
If you miss our mobile clinic, not to worry! The HSSA also has vaccination clinics at 9:30 a.m. Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. These are limited to the first 35 pets.
