School celebrates Martin Luther King Day of Service with community outreach
[January 13, 2011; Philadelphia, PA] – For the third consecutive year, the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet) will host a free dog and cat vaccination and low-cost micro-chipping clinic for pet owners. The clinic, slated to take place on Monday, January 17 at the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania (Ryan-VHUP), reflects the school’s commitment to the Philadelphia community and allows veterinarians to offer their services in honor of Martin Luther King Day of Service.
In addition to vaccinations, veterinarians will also offer a low-cost, permanent identification microchip as identification of pet dogs and cats is essential for successful return to an owner should they escape the home and become strays.
The clinic will run by appointment only and vaccines for 200 dogs and cats will be administered. All appointment slots are filled.
