Summer is coming, so you know what that means. It's time to get your pet's shots up to date? Thanks to a grant from the Banfield Charitable Foundation, Pima Animal Care is providing free vaccine and wellness check ups to the first 100 responsible pet owners in Southern Arizona.


The selfless folks from the Banfield Pet Hospital and PetSmart are volunteering their time to help keep your cats and dogs healthy. They will be testing for heartworms, flea and tick treatment, six-month supply of heartgard product, distemper/parvovirus and rabies vaccine.

From the press release:
“Not only is a rabies vaccine required by law, it protects your pet against a fatal disease that can infect your human family members, too,” said Dr. Jen Wilcox, the shelter veterinarian at Pima Animal Care Center. “And parvo is an extremely common – but preventable – virus that leads to the death of thousands of puppies in our community each year. We are very grateful for Banfield’s assistance in protecting our community’s pets.” 
This is a $200 value, according to Pima Animal Care.

The doors open at noon and the services will be offered at the center located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
