Vendors and volunteers are still needed for the upcoming Stilwellness pet event on June 5.
The free clinic is coming to Stilwell on June 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Carson Park, and 250 animals will be vaccinated free of charge. This will be a first-come, first-served free clinic.
“We are still in need of vendors. So far we have the Red Wagon, FFA and Patterson Animal Clinic,” said Shawn Noel, supervisor of Animal Control.
There is no cost for vendors to set up at the event, said Noel.
“Volunteers and donations are always welcome and needed,” he said.
There doesn’t seem to be a lot of feedback so it’s hard to tell if people are getting the information about the free pet vaccination clinic, he said.
The City of Stilwell Animal Control has partnered with Tahlepaws of Tahlequah, Peaceful Animal Adoption Shelter (PAAS) of Vinita and Oklahoma Humane of Oklahoma City to host the Stilwellness Pet Clinic.
This clinic is just to vaccinate pets of Adair County for free. The service will save a person between $50 and $100 in vaccinations and fees.
A second clinic is for the following week for spay or neutering of pets. So far three people have made appointments for the spay/neuter program on the June 10. To sign up for the spay/neutering clinic, (not the vaccines) call 918-323-5237.
