The Erie County SPCA is offering free Parvo vaccines for dogs.
Parvo is a life-threatening disease, which is transmitted through an infected dog's feces. It's a contagious virus that affects all ages and breeds of dog. Getting your dog a vaccine is the only way to prevent Parvo.
The SPCA is offering the free vaccines at a number of clinics this summer. The clinics will be held one Saturday each month. The first two are on June 9th and July 7th at the Broadway Market lower parking garage in Buffalo. The vaccines will also be available August 4th and September 29th at the West Side Community Center in Buffalo, and the final clinic will be held October 27th at the Lipsey Veterinary Clinic at the SPCA on Harlem Road.
You don't need to make an appointment, but your dog is required to be on a six-foot retractable leash. Unleashed dogs will not be vaccinated.
