Every day Arizona Animal Welfare League and SPCA receives hundreds of calls with questions regarding animals. One of the most common requests is for basic, affordable veterinary care for pets. Well, AAWL/SPCA is taking a step in answering that call. AAWL/SPCA is holding low-cost vaccine and microchip clinics every other Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Rabies, DHPP and Bordetella are the vaccines available for dogs. Rabies, FVRCP and FeLV are the vaccines available for cats. Each vaccine is $14 individually or $40 for all three. Microchips are $55 and include registration.
"All the animals that are adopted from AAWL/SPCA are already vaccinated but we know that many families have multiple pets. These services are critical for keeping pets healthy and together with their families," says Mike Jensen, Animal Care Manager.
"We are just starting with these clinics," says Shannon Boyer, Director of Operations. "We have plans for a mobile unit that will offer additional services, including low-cost spay and neuter procedures. We want to help reduce the pet overpopulation and keep pet healthy and in their homes. We also want to help other animal welfare organizations that may not have access to these vital services so they can continue to have a positive impact on animal welfare in Maricopa County," continues Boyer.
The vaccine and microchip clinics are currently being held at the Adoption Center located at 30 North 40th Place, Phoenix, Arizona 85034. No appointment is required but you must arrive by 1:45pm in order to guarantee a spot. Free parking is available on the northeast corner of 40th Street and Washington.
