Get on the Taggin’ Wagon at Foothills Animal Shelter! On Saturday, June 25 from 2 – 4 pm, we’ll be offering affordable pet licensing, vaccinations and microchips. Jefferson County Public Health will also be there talking about rabies and safety for your pets. No appointment needed!

Please bring your pet’s vaccination records to help us serve you better.


  • The rabies virus is fatal. All mammals, including humans, are susceptible to infection. So vaccinating your animals helps to protect your family as well.
  • If you bring written proof (a rabies vaccination certificate, not just a rabies tag) that your pet has had an unexpired rabies vaccination, we can give a 3-year rabies vaccine.
  • Keep in mind that vaccinations take a few days to a few weeks to become effective.
  • Be sure to keep your pet’s vaccinations up-to-date.
  • For the health of your animal, we can give two vaccines plus Bordetella (for dogs) at one time. After a two-week wait period, we welcome you to return for additional vaccines.

  • Rabies: $15
