For more than 15 years the City of Grandview has hosted "Pets Helping People" at Conn-West Elementary School gymnasium. The event helps pet owners keep their pets healthy and vaccinated, while also doing good for a local charitable organization, Grandview Assistance Program.
The event provides rabies vaccinations for $7 + four canned goods. Microchip IDs are available for only $20.
An average of 500 pets get vaccinated every year by professional veterinarians. Dr Snyder, from the Grandview Animal Hospital, has donated her time since 2005. “The rabies vaccine is such a small part of what we are able to do. The pet needs the vaccine but the owner needs good information about health and wellness. It is a valuable opportunity to have face-to-face communication about the importance of spaying and neutering” says Dr. Snyder. “We know Pets Helping People has a positive impact on those of us who participate, the pets that are vaccinated that day and on those in the community helped by GAP.” She adds.
GAP is an emergency assistance program for those people living in Grandview and in the Grandview school district. It is intended to provide short-term assistance to low-income families who need help during a crisis, such as food pantry and school supplies, rental and utility assistance. All the net proceeds help support GAP and that is why organizers named the event “PETS HELPING PEOPLE”
