“We have used the donated vaccine to vaccinate all dogs and cats that have been surrendered for adoption at our facility. Adoptions go through periods where some of the pets that we take in from their owners are harder to place than others. When we take in these pets, they get an initial vaccination and we hope that they are adopted out before the next set of shots are due. Sometimes that doesn’t happen.
“On April 4, 2013, we arrived at work to find a litter of Border Collie mix puppies that had been thrown over the fence. The pups were evaluated and put through the pre-adoption work-up. All received their first vaccinations and wormings. Several of the pups went really fast. Two pups stayed in the kennel until July 3. They have received a series of four vaccinations that they normally wouldn’t have received due to us having the free vaccine. We feel they are fully covered now that they are in their new home.”
