TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The May 21 event, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon, is free for the first 100 pet owners in line, this is according to a release from PACC.

The following services will be available on a first come, first serve basis:

-Heartworm testing

-Preventive flea and tick treatment

-A six month supply of heartguard preventive product

-Distemper/parvovirus vaccine (DHPP)

-Rabies vaccine

The clinic will be held at PACC (4000 N. Silverbell Rd. Tucson, 85745).

"Not only is a rabies vaccine required by law, it protects your pet against a fatal disease that can infect your human family members too," said Dr. Jen Wilcox, PACC's resident veterinarian. "And parvo is an extremely common, but preventable virus that leads to the deaths of thousands of puppies in our community each year.  We are very grateful for Banfield's assistance in protecting our community's pets."

The clinic is made possible by grant funding from the Banfield Charitable Foundation.  Volunteers from Banfield Pet Hospital and PetSmart will also be participating in the event, by painting, putting fabric on dog beds and washing dogs so they can put on their best face for possible adopters.

Any organizations interested in helping with this special work please contact Development Director Karen Hollish at 243-5984 or Karen.Hollish@pima.gov or Volunteer Coordinator Andrew Stocker at 243-5920 or Andrew.Stocker@pima.gov.
