Due to the recent rabies alert in Santa Rosa County, A HOPE for Santa Rosa County will be hosting a rabies and microchip clinic in conjunction with PAWS rolling vet clinic.
The event will be held Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Paw Pad in Milton at 5755 Washington Street.
Rabies vaccines will be $5 and microchips $10 with free registration. Microchips at a vet’s office usually run $65 plus an annual renewal of $20 depending on the company.
Microchipping is a great way to help keep your pet out of the shelter and have a quick return if they get lost. No appointment is necessary.
Payment is cash only.
Participating pets must be at least 3 months old. Dogs must be on a leash, and cats must be in carrier.
A HOPE public relations representative Paige Cary said they are thankful to PAWS of Ft. Walton Beach for providing the mobile vet clinic and staff. Panhandle Animal Welfare Society has also partnered to make the event possible.
Getting pets vaccinated is even more vital due to these recent reports of rabies, and getting pets microchipped is another way to help keep them safe.
