"Vaccination is super important so that we help prevent preventable diseases, like parvovirus,” said Dr. Morrison. “Parvovirus is a devastating illness that causes bloody diarrhea and death. So, by giving these vaccines, we help protect the animals in this community so that they can stay with their families."

The vaccines were available due to a partnership with Petco Love, who donated the medicine to the clinic through a grant.

Petco Love donated FVRCP vaccines for cats and DAPPv for dogs, both of which are disease and virus preventatives. CAHS provided free rabies vaccines as well.

“The turnout has been amazing today," said Dr. Morrison. "We have very very long lines and we are working very hard making sure all of the animals are getting water while they’re waiting outside in the sun and moving them through. So it’s really exciting to see this turnout.”
