The Chester County SPCA (CCSPCA) will provide free vaccinations to 300 owned pets during a community outreach event in Coatesville this weekend.

In partnership with the City of Coatesville Police Department, the CCSPCA will host a free vaccination clinic on Sunday, August 30 from 10am to 2pm at Coatesville City Hall, 1 City Hall Place, Coatesville. The clinic is available to all residents from both Chester and Delaware Counties. The CCSPCA will provide free vaccinations to 300 owned pets in the community as well as free food assistance to those who need it through the shelter’s pet food pantry, Henry’s Cupboard.

“The City of Coatesville Police Department appreciates the opportunity to collaborate with the Chester County SPCA,” said Jack Laufer, Chief of Police. “Offering this service to our community will assist in educating the public about the importance of vaccinations and increases neighborhood safety by ensuring that pet owners have an opportunity to make certain that their pets are up to date with all of their shots.”

The Petco Foundation recently awarded a $60,000 Lifesaving Impact Award to the CCSPCA for the shelter’s successful lifesaving efforts. Grant funding is being used to help financially support the CCSPCA’s strategic plan to address unmet needs in the community. The shelter’s new Pets for Life program has implemented a targeted free- and low-cost spay/neuter program in the areas with the highest poverty rate in each of the respective counties served by the shelter: Coatesville City in Chester County, and Chester City in Delaware County.

Awarded funds are also being used to support other aspects of the CCSPCA’s outreach efforts, which include providing free vaccinations, pet supplies, and general wellness care to the pets in shelter’s targeted areas while also providing humane education to the community.

According to Adam Lamb, Executive Director, the CCSPCA has focused on a community-driven approach in the last year to provide accessible resources and services to those who need them. “Outreach events, such as vaccine clinics, help us expand our reach into the community and allow us to assist animals in need beyond the walls of our shelter,” said Lamb.
