Maxinations Vaccination Program

Maxinations is a Sparky's Pals, Inc. program to help low-income families keep their pets healthy. It provides very low-cost vaccinations through a partnership with the Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP). If you do not qualify for a grant, vaccinations are still being offered to everyone at the low price of $25 through TCAP at the Plano Pet Palooza!

Maxinations grants are available for those that cannot afford TCAP's already low prices, and is only open to privately owned pets, no foster homes or rescue organizations.

Terms of the Grants:

· Only two pets per owner.

· You must purchase a full set of vaccines for your dog or cat (valued at $25 per pet).

· If approved for a grant, Sparky's Pals will pay $20 per pet and you will be required to pay $5 per pet.

· These grants are for use on November 10, 2012 at the Plano Pet Palooza held at the Plano Animal Shelter, which is located at 4028 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, TX.

· TCAP reserves the right to deny service based on health or temperament concerns.

How to Qualify:
