Wellness Exams for Newly Adopted Shelter Dogs and Cats
Brazos Bend Animal Hospital is currently offering free wellness exams for newly adopted shelter dogs and cats. We’d like you to bring them to us within 48 hours of getting them home. We will need proof they they have been permanently adopted by you. This proof includes any paperwork that the shelter may have provided to you. Please call or contact us online to set up an appointment. Mention at the time of making the appointment that this is for a dog or cat that you just adopted from the shelter. This offer is good through July 15th, 2018.
Adopt From Local Shelters
The next time you are looking for a special furry friend, please consider looking at your local shelters first.
3.3 million dogs and 3.1 million cats enter United States animal shelters every year. Of those animals, only 3.2 million are adopted. That’s only half of the population of dogs and cats going into the shelter that eventually make it out and find a loving home.
40% of dog owners and 46% of cat owners learned about their pet through word of mouth. That’s why Social Petworking Month is so important to get their names and faces out there.
What is Social Petworking Month?
June is Social Petworking Month, created with the purpose of helping dogs and cats find homes. In order to help pets get adopted that live in the shelter, people post on their social media pictures and information of shelter pets. BBAH wants to get involved in this as well, offering a free dental chew to clients who participate. It is limit one per customer, and this promotion ends on July 15th, 2018.
