Thanks to a special grant, Palmetto Animal League will hold a free Saturday vaccination clinic open to anyone who needs to have a dog or cat vaccinated.
“The Palmetto Animal League Veterinary Clinic is a resource for pet owners in the community who need quality, affordable veterinary care,” PAL President Amy Campanini said in a release. “Our goal is to reduce the number of pets surrendered to shelters because of financial hardship.”
Pet vaccinations will be administered on a first come, first served basis from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 12 – for 3 hours or until all allotted vaccines provided by the grant have been given.
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.
“We want to increase access for pets to get core vaccines, providing them with a baseline level of protection against disease,” Campanini said.
PAL’s Saturday Vaccination Clinic, located at 56 Riverwalk Blvd. in Okatie, provides limited services. They are unable to provide exams, treat, or diagnose your pet on Saturday. For complete care or if you have a sick pet, call PAL’s full service veterinary clinic at 843-645-1727 to schedule an appointment during the week.
The Palmetto Animal League Veterinary Clinic is an accessible resource for every pet and every family, offering wellness exams, vaccines, microchipping, and much more at affordable prices.
