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. Getting your pets vaccinated will keep them healthy and rabies-free. Additionally, rabies vaccines are required by law in the state of North Carolina; all owned dogs and cats must be vaccinated by four months of age, and the vaccination must be kept current.
Why Are Microchips So Important
Since you’re considering having your pet vaccinated, why not also think about getting them microchipped? Only about 22% of lost dogs and 2% of lost cats are reunited with their owners, but microchipping increases the chances of reuniting lost pets with their humans to almost 75%! During this simple and quick procedure, a small chip is inserted below the surface of your pet’s skin that allows them to be scanned by animal control and veterinarians if they get lost. Microchips are an important part of pet care because you never know when your pet might decide to go off on an adventure!
SAFE Haven for Cats is Here to Help!
We all need peace of mind when it comes to our pets.
The Rabies & Microchip Clinic is located at the SAFE Haven for Cats shelter (8431-137 Garvey Drive Raleigh, NC 27616). Owners (adults only) must bring cats in carriers and dogs on leashes, along with their pet’s most recent vaccination certificate (a tag is not sufficient). If an animal has been previously vaccinated, proof will be required in order to receive a 3-year vaccination. Animals without such proof will receive a 1-year vaccination.
