Franklin County Shelter to host free vaccination drive-thru event

On Dec. 9, the Franklin County Dog Shelter will host a free vaccination event.

This winter vaccine clinic, Drive-Thru style, will take place in the shelter’s parking lot for canine community members living within Franklin County.

“The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center recognizes recent public health concerns among dogs throughout the country, as well as financial barriers among our community members,” said Kaye Persinger, director of the Franklin County Animal Care and Control Department. “The goal is to assist where we can to ease some burden and do our part ensuring that even our canine friends are happy and healthy.”

“Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex is a complex disease, and the more viruses and bacteria present, the worse the clinical signs get,” said Dr. Meanie DeHaan, founder and Medical Director of SOS of Ohio. “Having these vaccines in effect before a dog contracts a virus or bacterial pathogen, will help prevent development of pneumonia.”

The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center encourages central Ohio dog owners to take part in this clinic if their dogs are not currently up to date on vaccines.

This clinic is a first-come, first serve event. All vaccines will be offered free of charge while supplies last. No registration is necessary.

The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center is located at 4340 Tamarack Blvd. in Columbus.
