Petco Love and Anson County Animal Shelter Aim to Stop the Spread of Deadly Preventable Diseases Through Free Pet Vaccines

As Part of Petco Love’s Initiative to Provide 1 Million Free Pet Vaccines, Anson County Animal Shelter Will Distribute Free Pet Vaccines on October 23rd, 2021 in Anson County

Polkton, NC Saturday October 23rd, 2021 – Anson County Animal Shelter will provide free vaccinations for Anson County area pets. The free vaccines are made possible through Petco Love's new national vaccination initiative, which is providing 1 million free pet vaccines to its existing animal welfare partners, including Anson County Animal Shelter, for family pets in need.

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, Anson County Animal Shelter and Petco Love are partnering to make pet vaccines free and accessible in an effort to ensure the health and wellness of our beloved pets.

Anson County Animal Shelter aims to vaccinate 500 pets through this effort. Saturday OCTOBER 23rd, 2021 9am to 12pm 7257 HWY. 74 Polkton, NC 28135 Shelter Parking lots.
