TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is offering free distemper vaccinations this weekend, according to a recent release.

In the last two weeks officials at the HSSA have seen an increase in dogs coming into the area that have tested positive for distemper.  According to the release there is no cure for distemper, but it can be prevented by vaccinating against it. 

On Saturday, June 14, the HSSA is offering a free mobile vaccination clinic from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at 635 W. Roger Rd., just west of Oracle.  Several vaccinations will be offered - DAPP (distemper) is free, while a rabies shot is $13 and microchip is $15, according to the release cash only will be accepted and the clinic is for dogs only.

According to HSSA officials there will be tents set up to keep cool, with free water for the dogs and Eegees for the people. 

This special mobile clinic was made available thanks to Dr. Janet Forrer from the Sunrise Pet Clinic and Dr. Debra Bohnke from Cimarron Animal Hospital volunteering their time. 

HSSA officials have also said through the end of July, they will be offering free DAPP shots at their regular low-cost clinics. These low-cost clinics are from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.    

For more information or questions please visit www.hssaz.org or call 321-3704, ext. 138.
