SPCA of Texas to Offer Monthly, Low-Cost Pet Vaccination Clinics in 2015

Group Will Also Provide Low-Cost Microchipping, Heartworm Preventive Specials

WHAT: In an effort to provide an easy and affordable way for the community to help curb the spread of common and highly contagious illnesses in pets, the SPCA of Texas is excited to announce a new series of low-cost, walk-in pet vaccination clinics for 2015. Monthly vaccination clinics are scheduled to take place at each of the SPCA of Texas’ three North Texas-area Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinics in 2015.

The first vaccination clinic will be held Sunday, January 4 at the Mary Spencer Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic at Village Fair in South Dallas, and will occur monthly on or near the first Sunday of each month. The second will be held on Sunday, January 11 at the Russell H. Perry Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic in McKinney, and will occur monthly on or near the second Sunday of each month. The third will be held on Sunday, January 18 at the Myron K. Martin Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic in West Dallas, and will occur monthly on or near the third Sunday of each month. For more information, visit http://www.spca.org/calendar.

Vaccinations will be $7 each for Rabies and $10 each for Bordetella, FVRCP and Distemper Combo for dogs and cats. Pet owners can also have their pets microchipped for $15 each. Additionally, clients purchasing 12 months of heartworm preventive will receive their pets' heartworm test for free (a savings of $25). Clients purchasing six months of heartworm preventive will save $10 on their pets’ heartworm test (costing $15, normally $25).

The six vaccination clinics taking place at the SPCA of Texas’ two Dallas-area spay/neuter and wellness clinics from January through March have been made possible thanks to generous support from the Big Fix for Big D initiative. The Big Fix for Big D initiative is a multi-year effort of community partners to spay or neuter tens of thousands of pets in Dallas to significantly diminish numbers of unwanted litters, with the ultimate goal of reducing animal euthanasias at Dallas Animal Services.

WHY: Spaying, neutering and vaccinating pets saves lives by preventing unwanted litters, keeping thousands of animals off the mean streets and stopping the spread of dangerous illnesses like Parvo and Distemper.

Having pets spayed and neutered is the most important way to prevent pet overpopulation and ensuring animals live happy, healthy lives in loving homes by decreasing roaming tendencies, aggression and preventing certain forms of cancer in pets. And vaccinating them ensures that their immune systems can protect them from dangerous and life-threatening viruses and bacteria. Texas law also requires Rabies vaccinations. Further, veterinary wellness care is a critical component of preventive care for cats and dogs.

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
