Public can adopt a pet, learn how pets can donate blood at Essentials PetCare grand openings this weekend
Published July 26, 2019
DALLAS – Essentials PetCare is scheduled to welcome animal lovers and their furry friends for two back-to-back grand opening celebrations on Friday and Saturday at the company’s Kaufman and Frisco clinic locations. Each will feature family friendly activities, giveaways and events to help local pets.
Essentials PetCare, which began expanding affordable pet care clinics at Walmart stores in the Dallas area earlier this year, will host the Kaufman clinic grand opening on Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a mix and mingle event from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and the Frisco location’s grand opening will be held on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
To kick-off the weekend festivities, Essentials PetCare has teamed up with Collin County Animal Services and the Humane Society of Cedar Lake to help find forever homes for homeless pets. Those attending either event will be able to meet local pets rescued by the groups and begin the adoption process.
On Saturday at the Frisco clinic, volunteers from Canine Blood Heroes will be on-site to share information about the growing need for canine blood donations, how to enroll pets in the program and how the donations save the lives of countless pets. Additionally, the group will offer free blood testing and evaluations for pets interested in joining the program.
“Many people aren’t aware that dogs can donate blood, just like humans do. There is a critical need for canine blood donations in the Dallas area and we invite those who are interested to stop by the event and learn how they can help save lives,” said Dr. Douglas Spiker, co-founder and president of Essentials PetCare. “We are excited to welcome members of the community to both of our clinic grand openings and help raise awareness about causes that help local pets live happier, healthier lives.”
Both grand opening events are free, family friendly, pet friendly and open to the public. The celebrations will feature fun activities, giveaways, complimentary refreshments, a coloring contest for children, and drawing for free lab testing with a value of up to $60. Attendees can also tour the new veterinary clinic and meet with clinic team members.
Those interested in attending either event are encouraged to connect with @EssentialsPetCare on Facebook for more information.
