Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA to Hold Annual Low-Cost Rabies Clinic on Sunday, September 30th
Charlottesville, Virginia – On Sunday, September 30th from 11am to 3pm, the Charlottesville- Albemarle SPCA is holding its annual low-cost Rabies Vaccine Clinic to celebrate World Rabies Day. Pet owners can have their pet(s) vaccinated at the SPCA during this clinic for just $10.00 per pet. Virginia state law requires all dogs and cats over the age of four months to be vaccinated against rabies. Attendees must bring all dogs on a leash and all cats in a carrier. Pet owners will need to show proof of current rabies vaccine in order to receive a three-year vaccine. The clinic is first come, first served and limited to vaccines available.
The SPCA reminds the public that keeping your pets’ immunizations up-to-date is the best way to protect yourself and your family from the rabies virus. Event organizer Beth McPhee, the SPCA’s Director of Business Affairs, notes that the Rabies Clinic “is just another of the many ways the SPCA reaches out to help the community care for their pets. The rabies clinic and the SPCA’s low-cost spay/neuter program are an important community service” Affordable Spay/Neuter appointments will also be available through the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.
