Friends of Valley Stream Dog Park
Local representatives of the Village of Valley Stream
What: In celebration of the grand opening of the Valley Stream Dog Park, Central Veterinary Associates is providing a low-cost rabies vaccination and microchipping clinic during the “Dog Day at the Green.” Veterinarians from Central Veterinary Associates will join elected officials from the Village of Valley Stream and members of the Friends of Valley Stream Dog Park for the park’s grand opening. In addition, Central Veterinary Associates has provided thousands of dollars towards the establishment of the park.
In exchange for a donation, owners will have their pets professionally implanted with a Home Again microchip and/or protected with a rabies vaccine. All the money raised will go to the Friends of the Valley Stream Dog Park.
The veterinarians emphasize that all pet owners should have their pets microchipped and vaccinated against rabies. This ensures their pet’s health and safety so that they can be found if they run away or if they are taken by a stranger, or if they are bitten by another animal that may be carrying the disease. Having a pet microchipped and vaccinated is a successful step in responsible pet ownership.
