Join us at the Strong Fire Department December 17th between 10am and 1pm for your last opportunity this calendar year to get your pets up to date on their Rabies and Distemper vaccinations at our Rabies Clinic. We will also be offering micro-chips and flea & tick preventative. Protect your pets this winter! Make sure to bring your pet’s CURRENT rabies certificate to ensure your pet can receive a 3-year Rabies vaccine this year.
Are your pets up to date on their shots? Dog license renewals are due, so it’s an excellent time to get your pets up to date on their rabies and distemper vaccines! The Franklin County Animal Shelter is here to help. Visit our Rabies Clinic, this Saturday, November 19th, at the Jay Town Offices between 10am and 1pm! Rabies vaccines are $10 and distemper vaccines are $15 for both cats and dogs. Additionally, flea and tick treatments and micro-chipping will be offered for $10 each per pet. Rabies shots are good for one year, or THREE years if you can provide documentation that they are current on their previous rabies vaccination. Don’t wait! Get your beloved pet vaccinated Saturday!
