– Lewiston-based humane society to host free vaccine events

Loading Related Posts

LEWISTON — The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society is partnering with national nonprofit Petco Love to host two free pet vaccine events on Saturdays, March 12 and 26.

Petco Love established March as “National Pet Vaccination Month” to encourage pet parents to keep their pets up to date on vaccinations and will provide free pet vaccines to the society for family pets in need. As puppy and kitten season approaches, pet exposure to contagious and deadly diseases — parvovirus, distemper, and panleukopenia — increases but is preventable with a simple vaccine, according to a news release from the society.

The society aims to vaccinate 350 pets through this effort. The first event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon at the 55 Strawberry Ave. shelter in Lewiston. The second vent will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 26 at the Minot Town Hall, 329 Woodman Hill Road in Minot.

Vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be the DAPPv Canine and HCP Feline vaccines. The society also will be distributing free rabies vaccines — people should bring proof of previous vaccine history.

The Give Pets Their Best Shot initiative makes crucial pet vaccines accessible to pet parents who may be experiencing financial challenges and assures that cost is not a barrier to protecting pets from preventable diseases.

“Treatment for these deadly diseases can be prohibitively expensive for many pet parents,” said Susanne Kogut, Petco Love president. “By providing free vaccines to those in need, we can help these pets live a healthy life. Through this national effort and our other Petco Love Care initiatives, we continue our 22-year history of strategic investments and innovation to end unnecessary pet euthanasia.”
