Central Veterinary Associates to Provide Low-Cost Microchipping Services at Mineola Street Fair
VALLEY STREAM, NY —As part of a community service, Central Veterinary Associates will host a low-cost microchipping clinic during the Mineola Street Fair, which will take place on Sunday, September 14 from noon to 6 p.m. on the corner of Main Street and Mineola Boulevard. (Rain date is October 5.)
The veterinarians at Central Vets will provide a Home Again microchip for the pet at a reduced cost. This ensures their health and safety so that they can be found if they run away or if they are taken by a stranger. Having a pet microchipped is a successful step in responsible pet ownership.
Those who visit CVA’s vendor’s table will have the opportunity to ask the staff about their pets’ health and address any concerns they may have regarding their pet. They will also receive visitors’ coupons for free visits and pet-friendly giveaways throughout the event. In addition, there will be vendors, live music and entertainment.??“We are proud to offer this low-cost microchip clinic at this exciting family event,” said Dr. John Charos, President/CEO, Central Veterinary Associates. “We urge all pet owners to have their animals microchipped. There is nothing more heartbreaking than losing a pet. Microchipping ensures your pet’s safety. We also encourage all animal owners to visit our table during the Mineola Street Fair so they can address any questions or concerns they may have.”
Central Veterinary Associates’ hospital in Valley Stream is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information or to make an appointment, call (516) 825-3066 or visit www.centralvets.com.

Central Veterinary Associates offered a low-cost microchip clinic at the second annual Pet Adoption Fashion Show, which was held in front of Petco in Massapequa on July 19.
For a $25 donation, CVA’s veterinarians provided pets with a Home Again microchip to ensure the pet’s health and safety so that they can be found if they run away or if they are taken by a stranger. All donations went to benefit Kids Adopt a Shelter, a national not-for-profit organization that links children and their families to shelters to comfort and support animals waiting for homes and the New York City Veterinary Emergency Response Team, a 501c(3) non-profit organization that provides and oversees all veterinary care in times of crisis for New York City and its five boroughs.
In addition to the clinic, there was a Pet Adoption Fashion show, raffle prizes, vendors, face painting, a dunk tank, and more. Proceeds from the 50/50 raffle and auction also went to benefit Kids Adopt a Shelter.
