Detroit Dog Rescue hosts a free vaccine clinic for Detroit dog owners

Today Detroit dog owners can bring their pooches to the Pet Supplies Plus on Livernois Avenue in Detroit to get them vaccinated for free.

Microchips are being offered for $15 and DDR will also additional services like heart worm testing, lyme disease testing, tapeworm deworming, and roundworm deworming for additional but affordable fees. All procedures and tests will be performed onsite. 

Detroit residents are welcome to bring up to three dogs per household and the clinic runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
