Location changed for AAMW drive-thru vaccination clinic

Due to an impressive response by the community, the City of Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare Department (AAMW) has changed the location of upcoming Canine Drive-Thru Vaccination Clinics. 

Clinics are scheduled for the next three Saturdays at the North Parking Lot of Dick Bivins Stadium. Entrance will be from Third Street.

The first AAMW Canine Drive-Thru Vaccination Clinic on Aug. 14 resulted in almost 500 dogs vaccinated. All vaccination clinics are from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Upcoming clinics are scheduled for Aug. 21, Aug. 28 and Sept. 4.

Vaccinations consist of the rabies vaccine and the DHPP vaccine. (DHPP is a canine vaccine that prevents distemper, parvovirus, parainfluenza, and two types of adenovirus – hepatitis.)

“We had a tremendous response to our first vaccination clinic, so much so that extra space is needed so that everyone has the opportunity to have their dog vaccinated – free of charge,” said AAMW Director Victoria Medley.
