In the past two weeks, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona has seen an increase in dogs coming in from the community that have been positive for distemper, a deadly virus that has no medical cure. The only way to prevent the spread of distemper is through vaccination.
If it’s time for your pet’s distemper, parvo and rabies vaccinations, come on down to Pima Animal Care Center on May 21 for a free vaccine and wellness clinic!
To help maintain the good health of your pet, low-cost vaccination clinics are held at the HSSA Companions For Life Center at 3465 E. Kleindale Rd., two blocks north of Ft. Lowell Road between Country Club and Dodge Roads, and right around the corner from the HSSA shelter.
7-8 a.m. every Saturday
6-7 p.m. every Wednesday
12:30-1:30 p.m. every Friday
Notice: The HSSA requires that all cats be securely contained in a cat or (small dog) carrier. Cats can escape easily if not properly contained. (No pillowcases, please!). It is always best to separate multiple cats in individual carriers. If you do not have multiple carriers, for your convenience we offer sturdy cardboard cat carriers for $8.
Dogs must be kept under control at a leash or in a carrier at all times.
Method of payment: The vaccination clinic accepts cash, checks, and credit/debit cards.
Other services: Microchipping of cats and dogs can also be done at the time of vaccination. Cost for microchip identification is $25.
Deworming is available for your pets. The cost is $10 for dogs and $15 for cats. For more information, contact our clinic at 881-0321.
DAPP (distemper/parco/upper respiratory combination) $10
INB Bordetella (kennel cough) $10
FVRCP (distemper/upper respiratory combination) $10
Feline Leukemia $10
*Now through March, we're offering Cats Only! vaccination clinics on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Beginning January 21 from 6-7 p.m., bring your feline friends in for their shots in a calm, bark-free environment!*
