“Vacinations are an essential part of keeping your pet safe and we are extremely pleased that CheapShots will provide this vital service free during the Family and Pets Safety Event,” said Judy Charuhas, co-founder of WinterParkLostPets.com.
* Safety Event to Also Include Free Microchipping for Dogs and Cats *
Orange County Animal Services will microchip pets at no cost during the event. “Microchipping your pet is one of the most important things a pet owner can do to ensure their pet is returned safely should it become lost. As many as 7 out of 10 lost pets do not find their way home,” says Ms. Charuhas.
Additional free services at the Family and Pet Safety Event include:
* Free Flashing Safety Light. Attach to your pet’s collar during nighttime walks. Provided by VCA Animal Hospitals.
* Free home baked pet treats. Courtesy of Pookie’s Bow Wow Bakery.
* Free pet safety information from Dr. Tiffany Jamieson, DVM.
* Free pet care supplies. Provided by Camp Bow Wow
More than a dozen local providers of pet services will provide safety exhibits, demonstrations, tips and information – all free.
“WinterParkLostPets.com is honored to have been asked by Kmart to sponsor the pet safety portion of this event which is presented by Kmart and held in conjunction with National Safety Month,” said Ms Charuhas. “All our exhibitors are donating door prizes to be given away at the event.”
In addition to pet safety, there will be many exhibits related to family and household safety.
The Family and Pet Safety Event will be held from 10 am until 3 pm at the Winter Park Kmart Plaza at the corner of 17-92 and Lee Road. Reservations for vaccinations and microchipping are not required.
