Central Veterinary Associates Joins Annual “Pets & Pals” Party by Offering Low-Cost Microchip Clinic

VALLEY STREAM, NY — Central Veterinary Associates — along with the Bayside Animal Clinic and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation — is offering a low-cost microchip clinic at the annual “Pets & Pals Party” that will take place at Alley Pond Park. The park is located at 76th Avenue (off Springfield Boulevard) in Douglaston, Queens.

For a $25 donation, the veterinarians from Central Veterinary Associates and Bayside Animal Clinic will protect your pet with a Home Again microchip. For an additional $18, your pet will be registered onsite for life. All donations will go to benefit the Alley Pond Environmental Center (APEC), the New York City Veterinary Emergency Response Team (NYC VERT), and Bobbi and the Strays, a not-for-profit no-kill shelter based in Glendale, Queens.

In addition to the clinic, there will be raffle prizes, rides, games, arts and crafts, giveaways, animal demonstrations, pet adoptions, and more. Proceeds from the raffle sales will also go to benefit APEC, NYC VERT and Bobbi and the Strays. “Pets and Pals” is presented by Northeast Queens Park Administrators and made possible with funding from the Office of New York City Councilman Mark Weprin.

“We at Central Veterinary Associates are proud to work alongside these organizations that sponsor this community event,” said Dr. John Charos, President/CEO, Central Veterinary Associates. “We hope all pets and pet owners enjoy their time at this event, as it is a day to embrace our love for animals. We encourage all owners to take advantage of the microchip station. It is an essential tool to keep your pets safe.”
