Palmetto Animal League will hold a free vaccination clinic Saturday, March 26 made possible by a special grant.
“Each pet is eligible to receive their basic yearly boosters, which protect against common diseases,” PAL Adoption Coordinator Sally Dawkins said in a release.
PAL is offering free 1- and 3-year rabies and DHPP dog vaccinations and free 1- and 3-year rabies and FVRCP cat vaccinations. Pet owners opting for the 3-year rabies vaccine must bring proof of their pet’s 1-year rabies vaccine from the previous year.
“It’s just as important for pets to get their annual vaccinations as it is for people,” said Dawkins. “We hold our vaccination clinics on Saturdays to help folks who can’t take time off work.”
Pet vaccinations will be administered on a first come, first served basis at the PAL Veterinary Clinic, located at 56 Riverwalk Blvd. in Okatie, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, March 26 for 3 hours or until all allotted vaccines provided by the grant have been given.
“We want to increase access for cats and dogs to get these vital core vaccines,” said PAL President Amy Campanini. “During our last clinic, we vaccinated nearly 70 pets, and we hope to help even more this time. There are no residency requirements. Everyone is welcome.”
PAL’s Saturday Vaccination Clinic provides limited services. They are unable to provide exams, treat, or diagnose your pet on Saturday. For additional care or if you have a sick pet, call the PAL Veterinary Clinic at 843-645-1727 to schedule an appointment during the week.
