Black Dog Animal Rescue works to promote pet health with affordable Vaccine Clinic

CHEYENNE, Wyoming (Wyoming News Now) – Black Dog Animal Rescue Advances by Hosting Their First-Ever Vaccine Clinic; However, BDAR officials said the clinic is designed to go beyond vaccine services.

“This vaccination clinic is probably the first of many. Part of our goal during the vaccination clinics is to have conversations with the people who visit them about their current relationship with the vet. We also know that pet health care and access to resources for pets often overlap with other challenges people face, and so we’re really not looking for how to identify those overlaps and what other options there might be just for our organization to better serve our community but to find places where people need more service, more access and more integration into these programs, ”said Britney Tennant, Founder and Executive Director of BDAR.

Tennant said BDAR is working hard to raise awareness not only of pet health, but other challenges that people in the community face when it comes to affordable services. Zoie Keast, clinic / shelter project manager, said people often house pets or neglect pet health because they cannot afford the services necessary to keep them healthy.

BDAR’s mission is to advocate and promote pet health and is working to provide more pet services in Laramie County. Tennant said they want people to be able to discuss their needs so they can help people find the resources they need.

Tennant said it was important for people to know that while BDAR wants to help put animal health on the right track, it is not a substitute for a regular veterinarian.

While the BDAR wants maximum community participation, spaces for the clinic are limited.

“We are fixed to an appointment, so we ask you to call our main line to make an appointment. We offer appointments every 15 minutes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call us; You must be the legal owner of the animal and over 18 years of age at the time of vaccination, ”said Keast.

You can call (307) -514-4024 to make an appointment or visit the website for more information.
