Killeen Animal Services partners with Petco Love for free vaccines

Free event will be held April 16 at Special Events Center

KILLEEN, Texas (April 11, 2023) ­­– The City of Killeen Animal Services Department has partnered with Petco to provide free vaccinations for Killeen area pets this Sunday, April 16 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Killeen Special Events Center (3301 South WS Young Drive).

The clinic will be hosted in a drive-through format and vaccines will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure safety of pets and people, all attending pets must be on a leash or in a pet safe carrier. 

The vaccines are made possible through Petco Love’s national vaccination initiative, which is providing one million free pet vaccines to existing animal welfare partners, including Killeen Animal Services, for family pets in need. Through this national effort, Killeen Animal Services aims to vaccinate 1,000 pets. 

“This is our second year participating in this campaign and we hope to continue for years to come,” said Jessica Green, Killeen Animal Services Director. “Petco Love has created an amazing opportunity for pet owners to receive these important vaccines free of charge, and we urge community members to take advantage of this amazing resource. As a proud Petco Love partner, Killeen Animal Services is dedicated to improving the lives of pets through this initiative. To further benefit pets and their families, we are excited to share that the rabies vaccination will also be available at this event and will be provided at no cost.”

Vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be the DAPPv Canine and HCP Feline vaccines. These vaccines are aimed at parvovirus and distemper in dogs and panleukopenia in cats, the most prevalent deadly diseases affecting pets.
