Healthy Dog Shot Fair | Events
On Saturday, May 19, 2012, Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter (SCCAS) will host the Healthy Dogs Shots Fair from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Ramsay Park Baseball Field, 1301 Main Street in Watsonville. Dogs will receive FREE rabies shots, FREE distemper/parvovirus shots, $10 microchips (includes registration) and information on low-cost ($20) spay or neuter options. Participant dogs must reside in Santa Cruz County (includes all cities). Dogs must be 4 months of age to receive a rabies shot and 2 months of age to receive a distemper/parvovirus shot. All dogs must be on a leash. Services will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Dog owners will also have the opportunity to learn about responsible pet ownership and dog training tips. “We hope to offer resources to the community that will improve the health and welfare of our area’s pets,” says Melanie Sobel, General Manager, SCCAS. Vaccines significantly reduce the chance of dogs contracting deadly diseases. Microchipping a pet offers pet owners the only truly permanent method of identifying their pet and linking the animal back to the owner. Spaying and neutering a pet is healthier for the animal and helps to combat the pet overpopulation problem.
