WHAT: In partnership with the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, the SPCA of Texas is hosting a free pet vaccination clinic, with rabies, DAPPv and FVRCP vaccinations plus microchips, all donated by Merck and Petco Love, to help curb the spread of preventable diseases and illnesses in pets living in Ellis County. The free vaccines are made possible through Merck and Petco Love’s national vaccination initiative, which is providing 1 million free pet vaccines to its existing animal welfare partners, including the SPCA of Texas, for family pets in need.

“Thanks to the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office for their partnership and to Merck and Petco Love for their sponsorship, we can offer these important vaccines at no cost to pet owners,” said Karen Froehlich, SPCA of Texas President and CEO. “We urge community members to take advantage of this free resource to ensure the health and wellness of our community’s pets.”

WHY: Parvovirus and distemper in dogs, and panleukopenia in cats, are some of the most prevalent deadly diseases impacting pets that are preventable with a simple vaccine. An estimated 30% of pet parents do not take their pet to a veterinarian annually for preventative care.

To address this critical need, the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, the SPCA of Texas, Merck and Petco Love are partnering to make pet vaccines free and accessible in an effort to ensure the health and wellness of the community’s beloved pets.

The SPCA of Texas aims to vaccinate 200 pets at the event, which will help prevent the spread of disease in Ellis County communities.

HOW: The vaccination clinic is open to the public and is first-come, first-served. Free vaccines and services for dogs include DAPPv, rabies and microchip. Free vaccines and services for cats include FVRCP, rabies and microchip. This free vaccination clinic is funded by Merck and Petco Love and are only available to pets and people living in Ellis County.
