This is a great opportunity to get your pets updated on vaccinations. Protecting your pets from diseases is very important as well as preventing them from reproducing over and over. Our local shelters are full from dogs and cats in our neighborhoods that have not been fixed.
If you need heartworm prevention today, you need to provide proof that your pet has tested negative within the past year or pay a reduced fee of $20 to have your pet tested. Heartworm prevention medication ranges from $5 for one dose to a small dog to $125 for a six month supply for a large dog. Comfortis flea prevention for dogs and Revolution flea prevention for cats are also available at a reduced cost. Microchips are also available for just $30 that includes a lifetime registration. Many more services are available. For more pricing information visit APLspayneuter.org
Animal Protection League is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1984 in the State of Texas as an animal rescue and adoption agency. In May of 1996, they reorganized and began operating a low cost spay/neuter and vaccination program which is located in Sulpher Springs, Texas. In January of this year, the league was able to purchase a 20' surgical trailer to allow the clinic to hit the road and visit surrounding communities.
Animal Protection League will be back on Tuesday, September 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you would like to make an appointment to have your pet spayed or neutered, visit APLspayneuter.org or call 903-440-4911.
