Killeen Animal Services partners for free vaccines

Flyer Free Pet Vaccines Saturday, August 12, 2023 11 am to 5 pm.

Free event will be held Aug. 12 at Special Events Center

KILLEEN, Texas (Aug. 7, 2023) ­­– The City of Killeen Animal Services Department has partnered with Petco Love and Bissell Pet Foundation to provide free vaccinations for Killeen area pets Saturday, Aug. 12, from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Killeen Special Events Center (3301 South WS Young Drive).

The 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. 

“We are proud to continue our partnership with PetcoLove to offer free vaccines,” 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 our free vaccines in April was a huge success. As a proud Petco Love partner, Killeen Animal Services is dedicated to improving the lives of pets through this initiative.”

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.
