    Low-Cost Vaccination Services

    September 28, 2016

    The North Shore Pet Pantry has teamed up with Healing Hands Veterinary Services LLC to offer low-cost vaccination services to the North Shore community. This service is to help those who are financially challenged and cannot afford routine veterinary care for their four-legged friends. We plan to host this clinic on November 13 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at Four Leggers, 950 Cummings Center, Suite 101X in Beverly. The pricing is $18 for rabies (dogs and cats), $15 for distemper (dogs), $15 for FVRCP (cats), and $5 for nail clipping. A rabies vaccination can be combined with a distemper or FVRCP vaccination for $30. All shots include a basic health and wellness examination.

    We need to know in advance how many of you would take advantage of this service. If you are interested, please email beverlypetpantry@gmail.com with the subject ‘Vet Clinic’ and include your contact info, number of animals attending, and type of animal so we can get an accurate paw count.
