Looking forward to the next one.Our second attempt at a shot fair was a wild success. We gave over 600 vaccinations and helped over 300 clients. The lines were long, the day was long, but reaching out to our community is also long overdue.
The goal of these shot fair, in addition to giving away free vaccinations, is to talk to people about spay neuter and microchips to reduce litters and aid in redemptions when owners lose their dogs and cats. To that end, we did over 130 microchips and signed up 60 people for free spay neuter surgeries. We also gave away a ton more vouchers for free surgeries. These vouchers are still coming in from our last shot fair in July.
All the volunteers from FOFAS to BADRAP and all the EBSPCA volunteers and staff were just super. My back was sore and my feet hurt, but the day was well worth it and we are all looking forward to the next one.
