CONROE, TX -- MCAS is partnering with national nonprofit Petco Love to give pets their best shot for a healthy life by hosting a free, drive through pet vaccine event on March 27th.

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 MCAS 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.

MCAS aims to vaccinate 500 pets through this effort. The free vaccine event will take place on March 27th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Woodforest Bank Stadium Parking (191115 David Memorial Drive, Shenandoah, 77385). Vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be the DAPPv Canine and HCP Feline vaccines. MCAS will also utilize separate grant funding from Petco Love to administer the Rabies and Bordetella vaccines and free microchips. These services are provided to Montgomery County residents only and only for cats and dogs. This will be a drive through event and is on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Thanks to Petco Love, we can offer these important vaccines at no cost to pet owners,” said Aaron Johnson, MCAS Director. “We urge community members to take advantage of this free resource to help reduce the spread of disease and ensure the health and wellness of our community’s pets.”

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.”

National Pet Vaccination Month is a continuation of Petco Love’s 1 million free pet vaccine campaign, which has helped 400,000 pets to date. Fifty percent of participating pet parents surveyed reported their pets had never been vaccinated against these diseases. With Bissell Pet Foundation as an additional partner this month, Petco Love’s goal is to increase awareness and accelerate the distribution of vaccines.
