Have you recently added a four-legged member to your family? As a service to city residents, the DC Department of Health is hosting a free animal vaccination clinic this Saturday June 5th to help pet owners comply with the DC law…
…which requires that all cats & dogs over four months old be vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and that all dogs be licensed. The clinic will feature free vaccinations for both cats and dogs, as well as the sale of those mandatory dog licenses.
The vaccination clinic will be held from 1-4pm at Fire Station #33 (101 Atlantic Street SE). Cats and dogs must be at least three (3) months old to receive a rabies vaccination, and all pets must be brought to the clinic by a responsible adult. Dogs must be secured on a leash and cats must be secured in a carrier box. Rabies & distemper shots are free with the purchase of a DC dog license, and the license fee is $15 for a spayed or neutered dog and $50 for an unspayed or unneutered dog. Dog license fees must be paid by check or money order payable to "DC Treasurer"; no cash will be accepted at the clinic.
