Low Income Low Cost Vaccination Clinic
Saving Dogs 4 Paws at a Time is partnering with Green Hills and Sugar Creek Veterinary Clinics to offer low cost vaccinations for cats and dogs living in low income families of Randolph County. No more than 3 animals per household per year. Certificate of vaccination will be offered twice in the year 2020, with the first event on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at Orscheln Farm & Home, Moberly.
In order to qualify for this outreach program, you must meet the following guidelines:
Must be a resident of Randolph County
Provide proof of current income: Pay stub within 30 days or SSI/SSD award letter
Provide previous Income Tax Return, showing the number in household and previous year's total income
Must be 18 years of age
Show a Missouri Identification: Driver License or Non-Driver ID
Vouchers will be issued on February 8 and July 25, 2020, where families wishing to participate can bring required information to see if they qualify. When qualification is determined, they will pay for the service and we will issue a voucher. The family must call the vet and set up an appointment within the dates specified on the voucher (60 days (February 10-April 10) and (August 3-October 2)). All exams/vaccinations must be completed by the final day of each period (April 10 and October 2, 2020). At the time of the appointment, the animal will get an exam and if well enough, vaccination by the vet.
Voucher Cost per Animal
Dog: Exam, 1 year Rabies Vaccination & DA2PP (Parvo) $30.00
Cat: Exam and 1 year Rabies Vaccination $20.00
Voucher exam will include temperature and listen to heart and lungs by vet tech and administration of vaccinations by veterinarian.
Comparison to Normal Exam: Upon presentation of the Low Cast Voucher, the pet owner will receive a health check of the animal: temperature, heart and lung check by vet tech. Additional treatments, tests or procedures recommended by the vet clinic are excluded from the vouchers and may be performed, at the pet owner's discretion at additional cost.
Rabies vaccinations are required by law and Parvo and other illnesses can be life threatening and are often very expensive to diagnose and treat. This program is designed to help vaccinate community pets that otherwise would not be vaccinated due to income barriers. This program will help to reduce the amount of disease among pets in our community.
It is the voucher holder’s responsibility to make and keep the appointment to have his/her animals vaccinated. Any vouchers not used by the expiration date will be forfeited without reimbursement to the voucher holder.
