Timeline 1

When pets are like family, we do everything to keep them healthy and safe. Come get your cat or dog vaccinated and microchipped at our Rabies & Microchip Clinic on Saturday, March 9, 2019, from 12 – 2 pm at SAFE Haven for Cats! Vaccines are only $5 and microchips are $15. This is a cash or check only event.

Why Vaccinate Against Rabies?
Rabies is an easily-preventable disease caused by a virus often found in mammals (most commonly raccoons, foxes, and bats). It’s transmitted mainly through saliva via bites or scratches of an infected animal; without immediate treatment after exposure, rabies is nearly always fatal.
