Petco Love and MS SPAN offer free pet vaccinations

Mississippi Spay & Neuter (MS SPAN) will provide free vaccinations for area cats seen at their spay/neuter and wellness clinics. The free vaccines are made possible through Petco Love's new national vaccination initiative, which is providing one million free pet vaccines to its existing animal welfare partners, including Mississippi Spay & Neuter, for family pets in need.

Panleukopenia in cats is one of the most prevalent deadly diseases impacting pets that are preventable with a simple vaccine. An estimated thirty percent of pet parents do not take their pet to a veterinarian annually for preventative care. To address this critical need, MS SPAN and Petco Love are partnering to make pet vaccines free and accessible in an effort to ensure the health and wellness of beloved pets.

MS SPAN aims to vaccinate 300 cats through this effort. MS SPAN will offer these free vaccines as part of their spay/neuter package and at their wellness clinic.

Vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be HCP Feline vaccines. Rabies vaccines are required at the time of service if not current and cost $12.

“Thanks to Petco Love, we can offer these important vaccines at no cost to pet owners,” said Sharon Garner, MS SPAN Executive Director. “We urge community members to take advantage of this free resource to ensure the health and wellness of our community’s pets.”

“It is heartbreaking when any pet suffers or dies from a disease that could have been prevented. It is further exacerbated when unvaccinated pets come into busy shelter kennels, where these deadly diseases can spread quickly, resulting in multiple deaths, skyrocketing expenses, and hindering saving pet lives,” said Susanne Kogut, Petco Love President. “By creating greater awareness and making this crucial preventative care more accessible to pets not currently receiving these life-saving vaccines, we can prevent the dangerous spread of disease.”
