CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - Black Dog Animal Rescue (BDAR) will host their first-ever Community Vaccine Clinic on Saturday, August 21.

The clinic event will take place from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm at BDAR’s location in Cheyenne - 2407 E. 9th Street.

Vaccines and microchips will be available for cats and dogs at low-cost prices in packages or a la carte options. Available vaccines include rabies for both cats and dogs, parvo/distemper and kennel cough for dogs, and FVRCP for cats. Appointments are limited and required. To make an appointment call BDAR at 307-514-4024. Pets must be at least 6 weeks of age to receive parvo/distemper, kennel cough, and FVRCP vaccines, and 3 months old for rabies.

Microchipping your pet will help you reunite with them if they ever become lost. There are no registration fees to microchip your pet through BDAR.

Keeping your pet up-to-date on their vaccinations will protect them from disease! Additionally, the rabies vaccine is required by law. “We are so thrilled to present our first-ever community vaccine clinic! As members of the Socially Conscious Animal Community movement, we are committed to listening to our community and focusing our services to ensure all families in Cheyenne and Laramie County have happy, healthy relationships with their pets’' said Zoie Keast, Shelter Clinic Project Manager. Keast added, “Routine, preventative care such as vaccinations and microchips are such an important part of a pet’s overall wellbeing and we’re excited to be able to provide these services in an accessible and affordable way.”

To participate in this event, pet owners must be 18 years old with a valid photo ID and have their pet(s) on a leash or in a crate. Microchips and vaccines will be available through appointments with limited walk-up spaces available.
