The Santa Barbara Humane Society will be offering reduced-cost veterinary vaccinations at a Vaccine Clinic Event on May 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. At the event, a number of vaccines will be offered for $5, including FVRCP vaccines for cats, and Rabies and DA2PP for dogs. The cat specific rabies vaccine, PureVax, will be available for $20. Additional vaccinations, as well as low-cost flea treatments, deworming, and microchipping will be offered during the event.
Dr. Katie Marrie, the Director of Veterinary Services at Santa Barbara Humane Society, emphasizes the importance of vaccinations for animals, “vaccination of both dogs and cats is an excellent way to decrease the chances of our pets contracting preventable diseases.”
Dogs should be brought to the Vaccine Clinic Event on leash, and cats should be brought in a carrier. Those interested in purchasing a three-year Rabies vaccine should bring their pets’ previous vaccine records.
The County of Santa Barbara will be selling animal licenses at the Vaccine Clinic Event. Attendees who plan on purchasing a license should bring proof of spay or neuter with them. There will be booths where attendees can sign up for dog training as well as Santa Barbara Humane Society’s “Critter Camp” summer camp.
