Low-cost vaccinations and microchip clinics are available through ACTion Programs for Animals. 12th of February
On Saturday, Feb. 12, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., ACTion Programs for Animals (APA) will offer a low-cost microchip and immunization clinic at the APA adoption center, located at 537 N. Solano Drive.
For pets in Doa Ana County, APA will deliver free Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, and Parvo (DAPP) vaccinations, as well as free Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukope (FVRCP) immunizations.
According to APA, the free immunizations are made possible by Petco Love's national vaccination effort, which provides 1 million free pet vaccines to its existing animal welfare partners, including APA, for family pets in need.
There is no need to register ahead of time. The immunizations will be distributed according to a first-come, first-served basis. Any immunizations that are left over will be provided during future clinics. Rabies, Bordetella, and microchip immunizations will be available for $15 each. According to APA, it is the only low-cost clinic in the area that provides three-year rabies injections when necessary.
Thanks to Petco Love, we're able to provide free yearly boosters for dogs and cats to help prevent common diseases, said APA Executive Director Michel Meunier. In our community, we encourage pet owners to take advantage of this great offer.
Only well-behaved dogs on leashes and cats in carriers are allowed at APA. Call the Mesquite Animal Vaccination Clinic at 575-650-2000 if you require a drive-up clinic.
APA also hosts a pet food bank at its adoption facility on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. Records of veterinary care and confirmation of low income are necessary.
Anyone entering the APA building must wear a mask.

APA is a forward-thinking animal welfare organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for companion animals in Doa Ana County and drastically reducing the number of unwanted animals imprisoned and euthanized at the municipal shelter. More than 5,000 animals have been rescued since May 2012. The majority of these are dogs and cats/kittens rescued from the local animal shelter. APA is able to do so thanks to the efforts of rescue/foster coordinators, foster homes, weekend adoptions, and donations from the public.
