Parker County Pets Alive moving

By BRIAN SMITH

Parker County Pets Alive has moved the location of its low cost vaccination clinics.

After several months at Cow Camp Cowboy Church, the organization has moved to Harberger Hill Community Center, 701 Narrow St., in Weatherford effective April 25. The organization has worked with the Texas Coalition for Animal Protection to provide the clinics and also spaying and neutering services.

PCPA President LeeAnn Adams said church officials asked the group to find another place to have their clinics because of safety and cleanliness concerns. After weeks of searching, Harberger Hill was found.

“Many of the churches we contacted couldn’t have us because they have carpet in many of their areas,” Adams said. “Harberger Hill will be good for us, and we appreciate the city’s help with this.”

The vaccination clinics are scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on the fourth Thursday of every month at the facility. Check-in for those wishing a spay or neutering begins at 8 a.m. on a space available basis.

Parker County Pets Alive will also be having a booth at Weatherford Blooms Festival April 27 on the downtown square. The group will be working with Dr. Ryan Cate, with Riverstone Companion Animal Center in Brock, who will be providing low cost vaccinations and microchips ($20) as well as heartworm testing ($15) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. PCPA’s booth will be at 111 York Ave. in front of Vick, Carney and Smith just off Palo Pinto Street.

“He told us he ordered a lot of the microchips, so we’re hoping people come out and take advantage of it,” Adams said. “We don’t want him to have to take a bunch back.”

Adams said the three person organization is having some growing pains, wanting to get a website up and running so people can find out more about them and their work with the Parker County Animal Shelter.

“We want to support the shelter any way we can and we’re busting our tails trying to do everything, but that’s growing pains,” Adams said. “Facebook is great but that can only do so much as far as providing information.”
