Valley Animal Partners held its second annual pet vaccination event Saturday, May 3, helping low-income Valley residents with free vaccinations for their pets.

Volunteers helped two veterinarians and a vet tech to give rabies and distemper vaccines to approximately 50 Snoqualmie Valley pets, including free microchipping for dogs at the Mount Si Senior Center in North Bend.

Dr. J.S. Khera and technician Laurie Bachtel from Snoqualmie Valley Animal Hospital in Fall City and Dr. Karianne Allen from Annotto Bay Vet Clinic in Issaquah all donated their time for the day, counted a huge success by Valley Animal Partners.

Valley Animal Partners is a non-profit organization, primarily raising funds to help Snoqualmie Valley seniors, veterans and families with limited income to spay and neuter their pets. A grant from the Snoqualmie Tribe has helped the organization expand to offer vaccinations, as well.  Another pet resource event is being planned for this summer.
