Pasadena Humane Society to hold vaccination clinic Aug. 11

On Wednesday, August 11, 2010 from 6:30 pm to 8 pm, the Pasadena Humane Society will host a public low cost vaccination clinic. Veterinarians from PHS will be on hand to administer rabies shots and other vaccines to both cats and dogs. Dog licenses for Arcadia, LaCaƱada Flintridge and San Marino will be available for purchase as well. You can have your dog or cat microchipped during the clinic for a charge of $20, which includes registration.

All dogs four months of age and older are required by state, county and city ordinances to be vaccinated against rabies. The rabies vaccine provides three years of protection for dogs 12 months and older, one year protection for dogs four to 11 months and for cats from 3 months of age. Also available are DHLPP and bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines for dogs and FVRCPP vaccines for cats; these may be given to pets eight weeks and older and provide protection for one year. Protection of pets against diseases other than rabies is not required by law, but is recommended for the well being of the animal.

Prices for available vaccines are:

Rabies $6 Dogs 4 months and older, cats 3 months and older

6-in-1 (DHLPP) $15 Dogs 8 weeks and older

Bordetella $12 Dogs 8 weeks and older

4-in-1 (FVRCP) $15 Cats 8 weeks and older

Cash and checks will be accepted as payment for vaccinations, microchips and dog licenses. All dogs should be on leash, and cats should be in carriers. Arrive early to avoid long lines and crowds!

For more information please call the Pasadena Humane Society at 626.792.7151 ext 115.
