TAMPA, FLA (October 23, 2017) – In an effort to protect pets and keep the community safe from disease, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay will offer free vaccinations for dogs on Saturday, November 4th, from 9am to 12pm at Perry Harvey Sr. Park, 1000 E Harrison St., in downtown Tampa. The event is one of the Society’s largest community outreach efforts and free vaccinations (Distemper/Parvovirus (DA2PP), Rabies) will be given to the first 1,000 dogs. The November 4th clinic will be the second of two offered in 2017, thanks to generous funding from philanthropist Jim Parker.
“Part of our mission is to ‘provide care … for companion animals in need’,” said CEO Sherry Silk. “Making sure that pets in disadvantaged areas receive the preventative care they need to live healthy lives goes a long way to fulfilling that goal.”
Requirements to participate in the clinic are as follows:
- Dogs must be at least 8 weeks old to receive DA2PP vaccines and at least 3 months old to receive Rabies vaccinations
- Dogs must be on leashes
- We will not vaccinate litters of puppies, only individual puppies will be accepted
- Limit 4 pets per household
