Vaccinations

Vaccine Clinics are held weekly, every Wednesday, from 3:00 to 4:30 P.M. Please check our website & social media pages for updates. 

Vaccine, License & Microchip Clinics take place weekly at our Shelter and at other locations throughout our community. No appointment is needed during any of our Vaccine, License and Microchip Clinics, but the clinic operates on a first-come, first-served basis, limited to 40 pets per clinic. Make sure to bring your pet’s vaccination records to help us serve you better. And, please remember to wear your mask and practice social distancing!

UPDATES TO OUR VACCINE CLINIC PROTOCOLS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

  • All patrons will be asked to wait in their cars. When we are ready for your pet’s vaccination, a staff member or volunteer will come to your car to bring both you and your pet into the building. Masks will be required upon entering the building.
  • You must bring your pet’s vaccine records with you. We will not be able to look up past vaccines during the clinic. This will be the only way to determine the appropriate rabies vaccination (1 year or 3 year).
  • Credit card is the preferred method of payment.
  • Depending on the number of patrons that attend, we may stop accepting patrons earlier than 4:30.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • 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.
  • If your pet is currently presenting with symptoms of illness or has been diagnosed with a contagious disease, please do not bring them to a clinic. Instead, please visit your regular veterinarian.
  • All dogs must be on a leash and all cats must be in a carrier. If you do not have a cat carrier, you may borrow one for the duration of the clinic from the Shelter; however, please leave your cat in your car while you retrieve a kennel to use.
  • We reserve the right to ask patrons to wait outside or leave the clinic if their behavior or their animal’s behavior is inappropriate towards our volunteers, staff, other patrons or other animals.
