First Ever “Healthy Owner, Healthy Pet” Event Scheduled for Saturday
Animal Lovers: Break a Sweat and Vaccinate Your Pet
#Bridgeport, CT – The Bridgeport Animal Shelter will host a one-of-a-kind event Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014, at the shelter to help improve the quality of life for everyone — big or small, four legged and two legged.
The event will be located at the shelter facility, 236 Evergreen St., and will include live Zumba instruction, an animal vaccination clinic, animal adoptions, a tag sale, raffle prizes, music and free food!
“This event is the result of cooperation with animal lover and Zumba teacher Monica Capozziello,” said Gina Gambino, the head animal control officer at the Bridgeport shelter. “There is such a need for low-cost rabies and Parvovirus vaccinations to the public for their pets. We wanted to bundle that with a fun event that pet owners or prospective pet owners can enjoy. I hope people take advantage of it.”
Zumba will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
After Zumba, animal visitation hours and vaccinations start at noon. Complete animal vaccination will be $45 and rabies vaccination only will be $20.
All dogs must be on a leash. All cats must be in carriers.
Zumba instruction will be directed by Nina Merlonghi, Hector Rosa, Geisa Kryszczynski, Elaine Naya and Fabi Ferreira. Zumba participants’ donation is $20.
All proceeds will benefit the Bridgeport Animal Shelter and its programs.
