See 150+ Adorable Pictures From The Furry 500 in Lubbock
A great big THANK YOU to everyone who helped make The Furry 500 the largest one-day event of its kind. More than 500 pets were microchipped and vaccinated for free on Saturday.
Additional vaccines and microchips were brought in so we were able to take care of 650 dogs and cats at the Lubbock Civic Center's northwest parking lot.
We here at 94.5 FMX, Lonestar 99.5, 102.5 Kiss FM, Awesome 98, News/Talk 95.1 & 790 KFYO and 1340 The Fan couldn't have done it without all of our sponsors. We worked together with Lubbock Animal Services, Three Dog Bakery Lubbock, The Garden and several more local businesses to make this event possible.
Three Dog Bakery Lubbock had treats, doggy pools and even frozen goat's milk to help the animals cool down. The Garden handed out free water to help us humans beat the heat. Veterinarian Casey Carrothers from the Animal Hospital of Lubbock was also on-hand.
Thank you to all of the food trucks on hand including Blue Oasis, Dos Hermanas, Simons Grill, and Stormin' Norman's.
And many thanks to all of you who brought your pets out. It's great to have met you. We're so glad we could help keep your pets healthy and safe.
