Our military personnel sacrifice every day to provide protection to our great nation. This resource clinic is designed to give back to our veterans and active duty military personnel.
Regional Animal Services will be providing dog and cat vaccinations and microchips for free.
Additionally, pet licensing and registration will be provided at $8 for spayed/neutered dogs and $20 for unaltered dogs. The licensing and registration component of the program is to ensure you pet can be returned to you if lost and provide proof of ownership.
“In honor of the selfless dedication and valor that our veterans and active duty military have made and continue to make, we are sharing resources as a token of appreciation,” Director of Regional Animal Services Shyanne Schull said. “Strengthening the human and animal bond benefits not only the pets but their families and our community as a whole.”
Nevada Humane Society will be handing out pet food and pet supplies. Staff from their Animal Resource Center will be providing free assistance and information to those who have questions or problems with their pets or other animals in the community.
“Our Animal Resource Center prides itself in helping people and pets to remain together,”  said Kimberly Wade, senior manager of communications and events for Nevada Humane Society. ”We provide the tools to help people better understand their pets and help them in times of need. Our goal is to make shelters the last resort for pets. By working with the community, we ensure a win for everyone by keeping the pet in the home and keeping the family together.”
