Toms River, NJ (February 24, 2022) – All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions (AFO) is partnering with national nonprofit Petco Love to give pets their best shot for a healthy life by hosting a free pet vaccine event on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
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 All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions 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.
All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions aims to vaccinate 600 pets through this effort. The free vaccine event will take place on Sunday, March 27, 2022 at 09:00AM-12:00PM at All Fur One Pet Rescue located at 1747 Hooper Ave. Toms River NJ, 08753. Rabies vaccines will be distributed by All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions. Microchips are available at a low cost of $20. This is a drive-through vaccine clinic, directions on where to pull-up will be provided after registering, please register by Sunday, March 20, 2022 at Registration link. No walk-ins due limited vaccines in stock. Vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be the DAPPv Canine and HCP Feline vaccines. “Thanks to Petco Love, we can offer these important vaccines at no cost to pet owners,” said Cori Shuey, Treasurer. “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.
