The City of Taylor Animal Shelter held its 14th annual Pet Adoption Day at the shelter on Northline Road in Taylor. Dr. Mary Jutte DVM, of Taylor Veterinary Clinic and her staff were there for their low cost vaccination clinic, a very popular part of the event as well.
The event helps save the lives of animals in need of loving homes while also promoting responsible pet ownership in a family fun atmosphere. Adults and kids enjoyed free soda, hotdogs, and a beautiful sunny day. Race car driver Brandon Wakeling was on hand with his car for a meet-and-greet.
Shelter staff offered tours of the animal shelter and helped connect homeless dogs and cats with their new families, as well as providing pet licenses.
Lots of people and turned out with their pets for the vaccination clinic to keep them protected from serious contagious diseases. The clinic offers pet owners who might not otherwise be able to afford it the opportunity to keep their pets healthy and help stop the spread of disease in the community.
The staff of Taylor Veterinary Clinic provided information about how to keep pets healthy through prevention and a healthy diet. Dr. Jutte also provided micro-chipping to help pets get home safely if they should ever get lost.
Event sponsors included Antech Diagnostics, Advanced Veterinary Care Group, Bayer, Elanco, Faithful Companion, First Veterinary Supply, Henry Schein, Hills, Merck, Merial, Novartis, Patterson Veterinary, Sogeval, Vetoquinol, and Taylor Veterinary Clinic.
