On Sunday, September 30th from 11amto 3pm,
the Charlottesville- Albemarle SPCA is holding its annual low-cost Rabies Vaccine Clinic to celebrate
World Rabies Day. Pet owners can have their pet(s) vaccinated at the SPCA during this clinic for just
$10.00 per pet. Virginiastate law requires all dogs and cats over the age of four months to be vaccinated
against rabies. Attendees must bring all dogs on a leash and all cats in a carrier. Pet owners will need to
show proof of current rabies vaccine in order to receive a three-year vaccine. The clinic is first come,
first served and limited to vaccines available.
The SPCA reminds the public that keeping your pets’ immunizations up-to-date is the best way to protect
yourself and your family from the rabies virus. Event organizer Beth McPhee, the SPCA’s Director of
Business Affairs, notes that the Rabies Clinic “is just another of the many ways the SPCA reaches out to
help the community care for their pets. The rabies clinic and the SPCA’s low-cost spay/neuter program
are an important community service” Affordable Spay/Neuter appointments will also be available
through the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.
