Clinics run from 10:30am to 12pm, and we take a total of 60 appointments per clinic.  There is a maximum of four pets per person.  Cats and dogs only, kittens need to be at least 3 pounds for vaccination, puppies need to be at least 12 weeks of age.


Dogs must be restrained on a proper fitting collar or harness and leash. 

Cats need to be secured in a carrier.


If your pet has received a prior rabies vaccination, bring in the certificate, or vet records indicating the vaccination, and the vaccine your pet receives will be valid for 3 years.  If you do not have proof of a prior rabies vaccination, or if it is the first time your pet is receiving the vaccination, the shot will be valid for 1 year.  Please bring the proof of prior vaccination with you, as we will not be able to look up anything or contact your veterinarian when we are in the middle of the clinic.

Staff will meet the arriving resident car side for completion of initial paperwork and the pet owner is encouraged to allow their pet to be taken into the building to receive the rabies vaccine while the owner remains in their vehicle after which the pet will be returned to the vehicle following vaccination.

In the event the pet requires owner assistance, only one member of the public and his or her pet shall be permitted to enter the building with a staff member for the vaccination.
