Area Humane Shelter vaccination clinic set

Friday, May 2, 2008

Volunteer pet caregivers Claire, 13, and Grace, 10, Pierce snuggle with two of the six new puppies that recently arrived at the Clay County Humane Society.
It's that time again, when pet owners make sure the "furry members" of the family will be happy and healthy throughout the year.

The Clay County Humane Shelter's Pet Vaccination Clinic is scheduled to take place in the Forest Park Pavilion on Saturday, May 10, and again on Saturday, May 17.

Clay County Humane Society President Todd Pierce said the clinic hours have not changed this year and veterinarians will be available to give cats and dogs their shots from 1-4 p.m.

"We are really grateful to Dr. (Marvin) Shew and Dr. Royer for their assistance during the clinics," Pierce said.

Prices are also the same as last year, with each shot costing $8.

Dog owners will be able to have their pets vaccinated with the 5-in-1 shot for distemper, adenovirus type 2, corona virus, Para influenza and parvovirus, with individual shots available for kennel cough (Bordatella), rabies and Lyme disease also available.

Cats can be vaccinated with the 3-in-1 shot for distemper, calici and panleukopenia.

Pierce said pet owners could also take advantage of micro chipping for a cost of $25 per animal.

Event organizers request all pets be restrained by a leash or placed in a locking pet carrier to help ensure the safety and security of everyone involved at the clinic.

Haha...good kids my foot. The shelter is not being taken care of correctly now that they have a a different manager and cleaners that don't know what the heck they are doing...or maybe they just don't want to try. Those poor animals.
