I have been searching for great deals for economically-strapped pet owners to get vaccinations, etc. for their pets.
Here are a few that I have found:
The Pet Project is pleased to announce and support the efforts of Rescue Wire. They’re a young non profit in the Twin Cities with many of the same goals. More services is a really, really great thing. This is their upcoming event:
RescueWire is proud to announce our First Annual Wellness Clinic! This event, sponsored by Metro Dogs, will feature a number of wellness opportunities for your companion animal! We will be offering the following low-cost services in one location:
*spay/neuter services from Kindest Cut
(requires pre-qualification – please register with Kindest Cut by clicking on our event on their page – http://www.kindestcutmn.com/make-appointment/upcoming-dates)
*rabies/distemper vaccinations – $10 each
*bordetella vaccinations (required for doggy daycare and dog parks!) – $10
*QR dog tags
*pet first-aid kits
*nail clipping (dogs & cats)
This is a FANTASTIC opportunity for anyone in need of economically priced vet services. The only service you need to prove income for is the spay/neuters provided by Kindest Cut. This means that ANYONE is eligible to receive discounted services at this event.
The next one is any Petco.

This one doesn't cover vaccinations, but can assist low-income persons with medical care and spaying/neutering:
6297 Upper 35th Street N. #11

... is dedicated to the prevention of overpopulation of cats and dogs by offering spaying and neutering and some emergency medical care to companion animals belonging to persons of limited income.
For more information, please contact the organization
The City of Ramsey offers a great program, too. The dates are April 22nd and May 20th from 11:30 to 1:30. Exams and low-cost vaccinations are provided by local vets. And, if you get the vaccinations, there the licenses are free.
I hope that helps. I have taken my dogs to the Ramsey Clinic even though I don't live too near there. They liked the outing, and I got to visit with some friends afterward!
