We've been working behind the scenes to start a major pet initiative in the Hub City, and we're proud to announce our first event.

Update: Currently, the location for this event is TBD. Previously, we said it would be at the LaPointe Shopping Center.

Local radio stations KFMX, Lonestar 99.5, 102.5 Kiss FM, Awesome 98, News/Talk 95.1 & 790 KFYO and 1340 The Fan have teamed up with the Lubbock Animal Services for a morning of FREE vaccinations and microchips.

Our goal? To provide these services for up to 500 pets (cats & dogs).

We believe this will be the largest one-day pet health and microchipping event ever. In other words, a possible world record. It is, at least, the largest ever planned for Lubbock.

We're planning to do this from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 9th, 2018, with 10 stations where pets can be vaccinated and/or chipped.

We're proud to announce the cooperation and help of other tenants of the shopping center, too.

Three Dog Bakery Lubbock will have treats, doggy pools and even frozen goat's milk for the animals to cool down. Hope Urgent Care will make sure there's plenty of water. Back 40 Grill will be open with food for humans. And even CVS will be pitching in with some help.

Our ultimate goal is to reduce the number of unwanted pets in Lubbock. We think the best way to start is by helping pets stay healthy and easier to return when they get lost.  We hope you will spread the word to anybody and everybody that would like to help our goal of healthier and happier pets.
