For a $25 donation, the veterinarians from Central Veterinary Associates, Bayside Animal Clinic and Terrace Animal Clinic will protect your pet with a Home Again microchip. All donations will go to benefit the Alley Pond Environmental Center (APEC) and the New York City Veterinary Emergency Response Team (NYCVERT).
In addition to the clinic, there will be raffle prizes, rides, games, arts and crafts, giveaways, animal demonstrations, pet adoptions and more. Proceeds from the raffle sales will go to benefit APEC and NYCVERT. Pets & Pals is made possible with the generous funding of the Office of City Councilman Mark Weprin and the generosity of CVA, which donates many of the raffle prizes, microchips and staff time for this community event.
“We at Central Veterinary Associates are proud to work with Councilman Weprin in sponsoring this community event,” said Dr. John Charos, Senior Vice President/Chief Operating Officer and Practitioner of Veterinary Medicine, Central Veterinary Associates. “We urge all pet owners to have their pets microchipped. There is nothing more heartbreaking than losing a pet when it runs away or is taken away by someone else. By having your pet microchipped, you are ensuring your pet’s safety and also helping a worthwhile cause.”
