Low Cost Vaccination and Microchip Clinic at North Port Thrift Store
Suncoast Humane Society will be hosting a low-cost vaccination and microchip clinic at their North Port thrift store, located at 14942 Tamiami Trail in the North Port Place Plaza, on Saturday, March 1 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Staff veterinarian Dr. Laurie Putnam and animal care technicians from Suncoast Humane Society will be there to administer vaccinations, give heartworm tests, and microchip cats and dogs. No appointment is necessary. Microchips cost $25, and rabies, bordetella, distemper, and feline distemper vaccines cost only $12 each. Leptospirosis and feline leukemia vaccines cost $16. Heartworm tests cost just $17 each. “We encourage pet owners to protect their pets against common diseases, and to help keep them safe by microchipping,” reports Director of Operations, Cheryl Casey. “Holding the clinic on a Saturday and in North Port will hopefully enable more people in the community to vaccinate and microchip their pets at a low cost.” For more information, contact Suncoast Humane Society at 941-474-7884, visit www.humane.org, or stop by their adoption center at 6781 San Casa Drive, Englewood. Suncoast Humane Society has been serving animals and people since 1971. Founded as Englewood Animal Aid Society, the organization’s services and programs were soon challenged to meet the demands placed on them by the pet over-population crises. Expansions to their facility in Englewood during the 1980s and 1990s helped the Society to more effectively provide for a growing service area. To reflect the changes, the organization became Suncoast Humane Society. Today their service area includes Charlotte County, most of Sarasota County, and the Boca Grande portion of Lee County, a total of over 450 square miles.
