Staten Island residents got the chance to skip a trip to the vet and save money on care for their pets.

Hundreds of cats and dogs got free vaccinations at Blue Heron Park on Sunday.

Officials with the city's Department of Health and The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were on hand to administer the vaccines.

They say cats and dogs should get a wellness check and necessary vaccines at least once a year.

The annual event is organized by Councilman Joe Borelli's office.

"It's a wonderful service. It's what public service is about and frankly I'm a dog lover so it's a lot of fun to meet some of my furry constituents," said Councilman Borelli.

If you missed the event, the ASPCA will be offering free vaccines for dogs and cats next Saturday at Corporal Thompson Park from 11 AM to 3 PM.
