Vail Valley Animal Hospital’s Annual Pet Outreach event returns
Vail Valley Animal Hospital is offering free pet exams, free rabies vaccine (or free DAPP vaccine for puppies too), free parasitology and free heartworm tests as part of the 12th annual Pet Outreach event Nov. 18.
After having to cancel this event back in 2020 due to COVID-19, the hospital will be able to provide this free service to the community again this year. To ensure everyone’s health and safety, the staff will all be wearing masks and are happy to provide curbside or in-room appointments.
Applications for a Pet Outreach appointment can be picked up at Vail Valley Animal Hospital Eagle-Vail or Edwards clinics, Wags and Whiskers, The Eagle Valley Animal Shelter or by calling 970-926-3496. Applications can be returned to either VVAH clinic location or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. There are a limited number of spaces available to primary residents of Eagle County in financial need or experiencing financial hardship, though VVAH will not require any documentation aside from the application.
The Pet Outreach event will take place at the Edwards clinic, as the EagleVail clinic will remain open for pet emergencies Nov. 18.
VVAH is also holding a holiday donation drive for the Eagle County Animal Shelter. Donations for the shelter can be dropped off at either hospital location throughout November and December.
