As Part of Petco Love’s Initiative to Provide One Million Free Pet Vaccines, IndyHumane Is Giving Free Vaccines to Pets in the Indianapolis Community

As part of Petco Love’s national vaccination initiative, which is providing one million free pet vaccines to existing animal welfare partners, IndyHumane will offer more than 1,000 combined canine and feline vaccinations to family pets in Indianapolis free of charge.

“We are thrilled to partner with Petco Love to continue to support the pet population in our community,” said Donna Casamento, IndyHumane CEO. “These important and free vaccines support animal health and can be a deterrent for those who might be struggling to properly care for their pets from a financial standpoint. We urge community members to take advantage of this free resource to ensure the health and wellness of our community’s pets.”

Vaccines distributed through the Petco Love initiative will be DAPPv Canine and HCP Feline vaccines.

“It is heartbreaking when any pet suffers or dies from a disease that could have been prevented. It is further exacerbated when unvaccinated pets come into busy shelter kennels, where these deadly diseases can spread quickly, resulting in multiple deaths, skyrocketing expenses, and hindering saving pet lives,” says Petco Love President Susanne Kogut. “By creating greater awareness and making this crucial preventative care more accessible to pets not currently receiving these lifesaving vaccines, we can prevent the dangerous spread of disease.”

IndyHumane serves approximately 10,000 animals annually, from adoption services to low-cost
vaccinations to life-saving surgeries. It is the only shelter in the state with a fully staffed medical team and surgery suite, allowing the nonprofit organization to care for animals that come to the shelter, as well as animals that need help from other shelters and rescue groups. The Petco Love partnership broadens their ability to support more animals on a daily basis.
