The Animal Rescue League will be working together with Exeter Veterinary Hospital and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel for Paws for a Cause, a free vaccine clinic for dogs on Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 10:00am-1:00pm.

Reading, PA – The Animal Rescue League (ARL) is collaborating with Exeter Veterinary Hospital and the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Paws for a Cause, a free vaccine clinic for dogs on Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 10:00am-1:00pm.  Paws for a Cause will be outside of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 701 Penn Street, Reading, PA.   

A limited number of Rabies and Distemper vaccines will be provided for dogs on a first come, first served basis.  If needed, the first 30 dogs will receive a free microchip, compliments of Home Again.  All dogs must be leashed during the Paws for a Cause event.  Water, shade and specially made dog treats will be available for the dogs during the event. 

“The Animal Rescue League is proud to provide the Rabies and Distemper vaccines for the Paws for a Cause vaccine clinic,” stated Liz McCauley, Executive Director of the Animal Rescue League.  “Vaccines are a simple way to prevent some of the most common and threatening diseases to dogs.  We are very grateful to the volunteers at Exeter Veterinary Hospital and the DoubleTree Hotel to help make this free vaccine clinic occur.” 

The DoubleTree Hotel Hilton will host a secondary Paws for a Cause vaccine booster clinic on August 20, 2017 from 10:00am-1:00pm for the Distemper vaccine booster.  The Distemper vaccine will only work properly if a secondary or booster shot is given to the dog within a 4-week time period.  All dog owners who return for the secondary Distemper vaccine on August 20, 2017 will be entered to win a free night stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel.   

The Animal Rescue League of Berks County is the only open admission shelter in Berks County accepting more than 6,000 animals annually.  The shelter runs at maximum capacity throughout the year, providing adoption programs, spay/neuter clinics, community outreach, education, animal welfare investigation and more.  The ARL’s mission is to impact all aspects of humane treatments of animals through quality service, accommodation and education of pet owners and the community.
