"On the Road Saving Lives"

While enforcement of these ordinances will not take place at our clinics, it is strongly recommended that all pets be spayed or neutered, and that all pets be microchipped.

ALL PET OWNERS, REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEY RESIDE, ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND ANY OF OUR LOW-COST MOBILE VACCINE CLINICS! You do not need to be a resident of any particular city or county to attend any of these events.
In order to receive a 3-year Rabies Vaccination Certificate for your pet (as opposed to a 1-year Certificate):
* YOUR PET MUST BE OVER THE AGE OF 1 YEAR, HAVE HAD A PRIOR RABIES VACCINATION AT LEAST 12 MONTHS EARLIER, and YOU MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF THAT VACCINATION administered by a veterinarian licensed in the United States. Under certain circumstances and at our discretion, we may also possibly accept a license renewal notice from the appropriate Department of Animal Services as valid proof of your pet having had a prior Rabies vaccination. In the event your pet's Rabies vaccination is more than one year over-due, a 1-year Rabies vaccination with a 1-year Certificate will be issued. Once we have issued your pet's Certificate of Vaccination, it can not be modified.
♦ Bring other vaccine records with you to the clinic if possible
♦ If you have a CAT, proceed immediately to our Cashier's table
♦ Flea & Tick Control is available - price depends on pet's weight
♦ Free Cursory Exams are provided when pet is vaccinated
♦ Nail trims are available if time allows ($10)
♦ Anal gland expression ($5)
♦ DOGS MUST BE ON LEASHES & CATS MUST BE IN CARRIERS (no cardboard carriers allowed)
♦ We can NOT vaccinate pets which are nursing puppies/kittens less than 4 weeks old, or pets which may be pregnant, sick, or have had a prior vaccine reaction (other than soreness or mild lethargy)
♦ Pet licensing is usually available at our clinics - please bring your pet's license renewal notice with you if you need to obtain licensing
You will receive a copy of your Vaccination Certificate and post-vaccine care instructions after your pet has been vaccinated. Please keep the Certificate in a safe place. WE DO NOT PROVIDE DUPLICATES/COPIES OF LOST OR DESTROYED VACCINE CERTIFICATES.
WARNING: IF YOUR PET HAS EVER EXPERIENCED AN ADVERSE REACTION TO A VACCINE, PLEASE TAKE IT TO A REGULAR VETERINARY HOSPITAL FOR ANY NEEDED VACCINATIONS! Your pet will require medication prior to receiving a vaccine and most likely post-vaccine medication, as well as observation and monitoring for several hours after receiving its vaccination. A regular hospital is better equipped to attend to your pet if it experiences an allergic reaction to a vaccine. Under these circumstances, it is also recommended that your pet receive only one vaccination at a time, waiting at least four weeks before receiving any other vaccination. You should also discuss with your veterinarian the risks to your pet if it receives additional vaccines so that an educated decision can be made as to whether or not any vaccines other than a Rabies vaccine should be administered. In cases of severe reactions to Rabies vaccines, your regular veterinarian can also complete an Annual Rabies Waiver Application on your behalf to be submitted to the proper animal services agency.
