Rancho Coastal Humane Society Teams with Petco Love to ‘Give Pets Their Best Shot’ for National Pet Vaccination Month

If you have recently brought a new pet into your home, you will probably need to get vaccinated.

As the season for puppies and cats approaches, the exposure of pets to communicable and deadly diseases – parvovirus, confusion and panleukopenia – is increasing, but can be prevented with a simple vaccine.

And thanks to Petco Love, March has been established as “National Pet Vaccination Month” in the hope of encouraging pet parents to keep their pets informed about vaccinations.

It will provide free pet vaccines to the Rancho Coastal Humane Society for pets in need.

The Rancho Coastal Humane Society aims to vaccinate 300 pets through this effort through the free vaccination event on Saturday, March 26, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. serving.

This is a joint effort between the North County Lifeline, the Face Foundation and the Rancho Coastal Humane Society.

The vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be the DAPPv Canine and HCP Feline vaccines. Some rabies vaccines and microchips will be available.

There will be pet bags with supplies and information on other resources for pet families, and the North County Lifeline will provide food and refreshments.

“Thanks to Petco Love, we can offer these important vaccines at no cost to pet owners,” said Judi Sanzo, president of the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. “We urge community members to take advantage of this free resource to help reduce the spread of disease and ensure the health and well-being of our community pets.”

The Give Pets The Best Shot initiative makes vital pet vaccines accessible to pet parents who may be facing financial challenges and ensures that costs do not constitute a barrier to protecting pets from preventable diseases.

“Treatment for these deadly diseases can be prohibitively expensive for many pet parents,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “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 investment and innovation to end unnecessary pet euthanasia.”

National Animal Vaccination Month is a sequel to Petco Love’s 1 million free pet vaccination campaigns, which has helped 400,000 pets to date. Fifty percent of the parents of the pets surveyed said their pets had never been vaccinated against these diseases.
