Humane Society Phoenixville Hosting Free Vaccine & Microchip Clinic this Saturday

As part of The Humane Society Phoenixville’s ongoing commitment of serving the community, on Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., veterinary staff and volunteers from The Humane Society Phoenixville’s partner organization, Humane Pennsylvania, will be on hand to administer free vaccination and microchip services to area residents. Vaccinations for Rabies and Distemper-Parvo, along with Home Again microchips will be provided at no-cost for up to 75 dogs on a first come first served basis.

In tough economic times, many pet owners feel as though they have to choose between caring for their family or their pets’ needs. Humane Pennsylvania has been a leader in developing programs, such as PetNet and AniMeals, so that pet owners hopefully do not have to make that unfortunate choice. “Our goal has always been to make pet surrenders a last resort,” said Karel Minor, Humane Pennsylvania’s President/CEO. “Fortunately, we have made tremendous strides in this area, but more can always be done.” In an effort to get the word out and help as many canine owners as possible, The Humane Society Phoenixville has been promoting the event by meeting with various social service organizations and canvassing lower-income areas of the community.
  • What: Free Vaccine & Microchip Clinic
  • Where: Friendship Fire Company #2, 423 West High Street, Phoenixville, PA
  • When: Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Details: Limited to 75 canines only and served on a first come first served basis
