Wilmington’s City Hall is going to the dogs – and cats – at least for tomorrow as the City hosts a FREE rabies shot clinic in Freedom Plaza at 800 North French Street, next door to the Redding City/County Building.  Mayor Mike Purzycki and the Chief Executive Officer of the Brandywine Valley SPCA, Adam Lamb, invite animal lovers to bring their dogs and cats to the FREE event to be held tomorrow, Saturday, July 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The first 500 animals to arrive at the event will receive FREE rabies and distemper shots (dogs) or the FVRCP vaccination (cats). The Brandywine Valley SPCA will also have pet food assistance available for as long as supplies last. Pet owners who have any questions about tomorrow’s rabies shot clinic should call 302.516.1004 and speak with a representative of the Brandywine Valley SPCA.
“Wilmington cares about animals and their owners, so we are very happy to host this FREE rabies clinic and urge you to tell your neighbors and friends about it,” said Mayor Purzycki. “The Brandywine Valley SPCA is doing a tremendous amount of work regarding pet care, adoption and education, and I urge you to continue supporting their efforts also.”
“We offer families a range of safety net services like this clinic and our twice monthly pet food pantries to help them care for their pets during times of need or when resources aren’t available,” said Adam Lamb. “No one should have to give the pet they love to a shelter due to lack of resources.”
Each year, the Brandywine Valley SPCA cares for over 14,000 animals and finds homes or other placement for at least 95% of the homeless pets that enter its shelter. Mayor Purzycki said the BVSPCA is dedicated to maintaining an open door policy for animals and a commitment to lifesaving and second chances. He said the Brandywine Valley SPCA is working tirelessly to cultivate a no-kill community and deserves our support.
