VALLEY STREAM, NY — In celebration of the grand opening of the Valley Stream Dog Park, Central Veterinary Associates will be offering a low-cost rabies vaccination and microchip clinic on May 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both clinics will be held during the first annual “Dog Day at the Green,” which is being presented by the Incorporated Village of Valley Stream and the Friends of the Valley Stream Dog Park.

Pet owners can bring in their animals to be vaccinated against rabies for a suggested donation of only $10. Microchipping is also available for a $25 donation, plus $18 to register the pet into the database. All proceeds will go to benefit the Friends of Valley Stream Dog Park. In addition to the clinics, the event will feature local rescue groups with dogs available for adoption, vendors, pet training and obedience advice and demonstrations, a pet portrait artist and raffles.

Central Veterinary Associates has provided thousands of dollars towards the establishment of the park. The veterinarians at CVA have provided low-cost vaccination and microchip clinics as a public service in order to encourage pet owners to keep their pets safe.

“We are very proud to be part of the inaugural Dog Day at the Green,” said Dr. John Charos, DVM, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Central Veterinary Associates. “This dog park will provide local pet owners the opportunity to give their pets a place to run around and get some exercise. The vaccination and microchipping services we will offer during this event provide the protection your pets need when you bring them to a dog park.”

The Dog Park is located at the Village Green on the corner of Hicks Street and West Valley Stream Boulevard. In the event of rain, the event will be rescheduled for May 6. For more information or to make an appointment, call 1 (888) 4CVA-PET (428-2738) or visit www.centralvets.com.
