Charleston Animal Society’s “Vax-a-palooza” Aims to Set First World Record
Charleston Animal Society (CAS) says they are aiming to set the first world record for most pet vaccine pledges in 24 hours in the Palmetto State through their No Kill South Carolina initiative. The event, called Vax-a-palooza, will be held at the North Charleston Coliseum from 9 am to 5 pm.
“This is unprecedented,” said Charleston Animal Society President and CEO Joe Elmore, CAWA, CFRE. “This will involve 2,000 dogs and cats from South Carolina, as we race to break the World Record for the Most Pet Vaccine Pledges in 24 hours. Everyone with a pet is invited to attend our Vax-a-palooza on February 18th at the North Charleston Coliseum/Convention Center.”
You can sign your pet up for a FREE appointment at CharlestonAnimalSociety.org/
Shots (you can make appointments for more than one animal). Each animal will receive $150 in free services including a microchip and lifesaving vaccinations.
“Even if your dog or cat is updated on their vaccines, Vax-a-palooza will offer a free microchip that helps to find lost animals,” Elmore said. “We will also help you verify your pet’s current microchip if they already have one. Microchips are so important during hurricane season when so many pets are lost during evacuations.”
Those in attendance will also receive a free emergency Pet Grab ‘n Go bag and be signed up for Petco Love Lost which uses facial recognition to find lost animals.
CAS says the purpose of Vax-a-palooza is to:
- Promote veterinary care for companion animals to enhance their health
- Prepare companion animals and their families for hurricane evacuations
- Vaccinate companion animals to reduce community disease
- Microchip companion animals to reunite lost animals with loved ones
- Register companion animals in Petco Love Lost to reunite lost animals via facial identification with loved ones
