Bring Them Home For Christmas


Dogs and cats adopted from participating shelters before Christmas receive free vaccines, services

ROGERS, AR November 18, 2019 All Pets Animal Hospital, with veterinary offices in Rogers and
Bentonville, will provide any dog or cat adopted from a participating animal shelter before December 31
with a free examination, free initial vaccines, and free diagnostics, pet food, heartworm and flea/tick
preventatives. The approximate value of free products and services is $200.

“There are hundreds of dogs and cats waiting on homes in area shelters,” said Dr. Wayne
Wolfenkoehler, founding veterinarian at All Pets Animal Hospital. “We hope the gift we’re providing will
be the incentive more people need to go ahead and bring a pet into their home in time for Christmas.”

Five area shelters are participating with All Pets Animal Hospital in this limited-time offer: the Rogers
Humane Society, Rogers Animal Services, Centerton Animal Shelter, Bella Vista Animal Shelter and the
Springdale Animal Shelter. Dogs and cats adopted from these shelters before the end of the year should
schedule their pet at All Pets Animal Hospital and present their adoption certificate to receive their free

Included in the list of free services for dogs are a pet examination, heartworm test, fecal test and
deworming, rabies, bordetella and distemper vaccines, a bag of Hill’s Science Diet pet food, a 6-month
supply of heartworm preventative, and flea/tick preventative. Cats receive the same package except
that a feline leukemia test replaces the heartworm test and preventative.

Dr. Wolfenkoehler said he was moved to take action to assist shelter pet adoptions after he adopted a
puppy being fostered from an area shelter. Shortly afterward, photos of the puppy’s mother and siblings
appeared on the shelter website. “There were littermates of my own dog who needed homes. But there
were so many other potentially great family pets who also needed a chance. We wanted to do what we
could to encourage adoption of shelter pets.” Wolfenkoehler called the campaign Bring Them Home for
Christmas and launched it in 2018. Now in its second year, All Pets Animal Hospital hopes to broaden
public awareness of the offer so that more pets may be adopted.
