July Vaccine Clinic in Partnernship with Ruffhaven

News Release

Free Drive-up Vaccine Clinic for Pets in Eagle Mountain. 

4447 Major St, Eagle Mountain, Utah – 7/17/2022 – On July 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) and Ruff Haven Crisis Sheltering are working together to provide 288 owned pets with free preventative care and pet supplies. No more appointments are available for this clinic. 

“Last year, we saw an outbreak of dogs and puppies with parvovirus in Eagle Mountain, 12 of which we treated at our shelter,” said Guinn Shuster, HSU associate director of marketing and communications. “Parvovirus is expensive to treat and often deadly to puppies who contract it. However, it is easily preventable by vaccinating your pets. HSU aims to help keep community-owned animals healthy by sponsoring this event through our pet retention program.” 

Both Nonprofits understand the difficulties many families are facing this year with inflation costs. Therefore, the clinic will offer the following services for free:

– 1-year Rabies vaccine (Animals must be 16 weeks old to receive) 

– DHPP (core vaccine for dogs) (Must be six weeks old)

– FVRCP (core vaccine for cats) (Must be eight weeks old)

– Microchip

– Metal Pet identification tag

– Bag of pet food

“Our goal is to keep people and pets together and pets out of shelters,” said Kristina Pulsipher, Ruff Haven Crisis Sheltering executive director. “We understand by providing completely free services to pet loving-families experiencing hardships that these types of services can help keep families together.”
