Microchipping & Rabies

Microchip and rabies clinics are held on the first Monday of every month from 12-4PM.

Please note: Microchip and Rabies services have been changed from Sunday to Monday


If you are planning on attending, please call the clinic extension (206) or email [email protected] to make an appointment. All cats must be in carriers and all dogs must be on leashes.   

We’re committed to keeping clients and our staff safe during COVID-19 with new admittance and check-out procedures. We request that all people wear masks.  

Procedure for Clients  

Drive to the right side of the shelter to park. A staff member will come to you.

Check-in Process:

Please remain in your vehicle. A clinic assistant will come to your vehicle to collect information and assign you a number. After checking in, you and your pet will remain in the vehicle.


Your pet will receive their vaccination and/or microchip while remaining in the vehicle. If your pet is unable to have vaccinations/microchipping done in the vehicle, our clinic staff will bring them inside the shelter, perform the procedures, and then return your pet to your vehicle.


Check and credit card are preferred payment methods. After you have paid, you will be given a vaccine certificate.


Did you know that one in three pets will get lost in their lifetime?

Without identification, 90 percent will never return home. Returning lost pets to their owners is an important part of the SPCA’s lifesaving mission. That’s why the SPCA offers clinics for your pet to receive a rabies vaccine or microchip.

The SPCA hosts Compassionate Care Clinics throughout the year for clients on public assistance. 

This does not include a vet exam. All pets should be healthy.

Any clients on assistance are encouraged to attend the Compassionate Care Clinic to receive rabies vaccines, vet exams, and microchips.

Rabies vaccine: $25 | With proof of public assistance: $15
Microchip: $30 | With proof of public assistance: $25
Rabies vaccine & microchip together: $40 | With proof of public assistance: $30

A current rabies vaccine is required by Virginia State Law for all cats and dogs over four months of age. Bring your pet’s previous proof of rabies vaccination to receive a three-year rabies vaccine.


Limit of four pets per person per appointment. Please bring all cats in carriers and all dogs on leashes. Contact the clinic to schedule an appointment for a feral animal.
