If your pet needs distemper, parvo or rabies vaccinations, you can get them for free from 9 a.m. to noon May 21 at Pima Animal Care Center.

The shelter, located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road, is offering free vaccinations and a wellness clinic to its first 100 patrons that day.

Free pet services include heartworm testing, preventive flea and tick treatment, six-month supply of a heartguard preventive product, distemper/parvovirus vaccine and rabies vaccine — a $200 value.

Vaccinations and diagnostic testing will be provided on a first come, first served basis.

These free services are possible through grant funding from Banfield Charitable Foundation. Volunteers from Banfield Pet Hospital and PetSmart will participate as part of an annual day of community service.
