Erie County SPCA offering free parvo vaccines for dogs through October

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Want to keep your dog from getting the deadly canine parvovirus? The Erie County SPCA is offering free vaccinations clinics.

The virus, as it’s also simply known as, “parvo,” can affect any kind of dog, no matter how old they are. The deadly disease can be spread to any person or animal that comes in contact with an infected dog’s feces.

Parvo is weather-resistant, does not have a cure, and is life-threatening without proper veterinary care. The SPCA says vaccination is the only way to immunize dogs from the disease.

The SPCA will hold monthly clinics in Buffalo on Saturdays through October. Here are the dates and locations:

  • August 13 – West Side Community Center, 161 Vermont St.
  • September 10 – West Side Community Center, 161 Vermont St.
  • October 1 – West Side Community Center, 161 Vermont St.

Each clinic will last from 1 to 3 p.m. All dogs at the clinics must be on leashes, or they will not vaccinated.
