2nd Drive-Thru Microchip/Vaccination Clinic For Pets This Sunday
El Paso Animal Services will be helping the community this Sunday by offering again their free clinic for El Paso pet owners. Normally, the clinic is offered inside a facility but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Animal Services is having to change the way they offer these services. They saw great success with their last drive-thru clinic and now they're doing it again this weekend. The Drive-Thru vaccination/microchip clinic is sponsored by PetsMart Charities and will be happening this Sunday, June 14th. From 8 a.m. to noon you can take your pets to the Socorro Activities Complex parking lot for the clinic. All attendees must wear a mask or face covering while at the pet clinic. The event is on a first-come, first-serve basis and services will only be given to the first 500 people in attendance. All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier and kept in their owner's vehicle at all times. Dogs can get their parvo/distemper vaccination and cats will be receiving their feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia (FVRCP) vaccination. All dogs and cats will also receive a microchip and a complimentary gallon bag of pet food. No other vaccines will be available and pet owners are encouraged to bring plenty of water for their pets since the hot weather is expected.
The Socorro Activities Complex is located at 1300 Joe Battle Boulevard. The only entrance to the clinic will be through Southview Drive, located south of the Socorro Activities Complex. Cars will enter through Southview or Paseo Del Este Boulevard. Find out more details by calling El Paso Animal Services at (915) 212-PAWS or check out their Facebook page.
