Distemper Vaccinations FREE!!

MIAMI, February 28th, 2011) – In an effort to raise awareness about Canine Distemper, Animal Services is hosting a Drive-thru Distemper Prevention Event on Sunday, March 6, 2011, from 9 am to 3 pm at the shelter located at 7401 NW 74 Street, Miami, FL, 33166.

Volunteer veterinarians will provide free Distemper/Parvo vaccination to dogs between the ages of 2 months and 1 year of age.  Canine Distemper (and Parvo Virus) can be fatal in unvaccinated puppies and dogs.  These viruses are becoming more dangerous in our community and vaccination is essential.  Animal Services encourages all pet owners to regularly vaccinate, identify and sterilize their pets.  A healthy pet is a happy pet.  Other services provided at the shelter are rabies vaccination, microchipping and sale of dog license tags.  For additional information and services, please visit www.miamidade.gov/animals

 Volunteers will give out preventive care information. Donations of $3 are welcome to cover the cost of the vaccine, but not mandatory.  Donations of dog and/or cat toys are appreciated.

Donation Gift Certificates are ideal presents for any occasion.  It’s the perfect gift for everyone and a gift that will help the shelter animals.

Animal Services is responsible for enforcing Chapter 5 of the Miami-Dade County Code, as well as Florida Statute 828, which deals primarily with animal cruelty issues.  Unlike private shelters that have limitations on the number of pets they accept, Animal Services accepts all dogs and cats. Each year, the shelter impounds 36,000 pets.  The goal at Animal Services is to reunite lost pets with their families or find life-long homes for as many animals as possible.
