EP Animal Services takes care of our fur friends

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — What’s better than a drive-thru for pet vaccines and microchips? A free drive.

El Paso Animal Services and its community partners will offer free pet vaccines and microchips on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to the first 500 animals.

Pets must remain in the vehicle; all dogs must be on a leash and cats must be placed in a secure carrier when visiting the drive-thru clinic.

Dogs will receive a distemper vaccine, while cats will receive a vaccine for feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia, both will also be microchipped.

Pets must be six weeks of age or older to receive vaccines. No other pet vaccines will be available at this drive-in event.

This is an ongoing effort to ensure community pets are healthy and protected from deadly diseases such as parvovirus and distemper.

What: Drive-Through Pet Wellness Clinic

When: 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday, May 22, 2022
