Pet care isn't cheap, and when times get tough some families must choose paying bills and buying groceries over maintaining proper health care for their beloved pet.

In a lot of cases, a budget crisis causes a family to surrender their animal to a local shelter, and that is one thing Rockford's CARE for PETS works hard to avoid.

If a couple hundred dollars in health care is all that stands between a pet going to a shelter and remaining in a home with a family that loves them, CARE for PETS is determined to help. One way they do that is by hosting free pet health fairs like this one set for Saturday, May 5, 2018...


Yes, Saturday's health fair services are limited to Rockford residents in the 61101, 61103, 61104 and 61107 zip codes, but they are not limited to people who receive LINK in those zip codes. Only residents in the 61107 zip code need to show proof of LINK to receive the services according to the CARE for PETS Facebook page.

If you need more information on this free pet health fair, please call 779-208-4060.
