ALL PET OWNERS, REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEY RESIDE, ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND ANY OF OUR MOBILE VACCINE CLINICS!  You do not need to be a resident of any particular city or county to attend any of our events.  

Please bring the following records to the vaccine clinic if possible, as they will assist us in moving you through the line quicker:

     *  PRIOR RABIES CERTIFICATE  (Necessary in order to receive a 3-year Rabies vaccination)
     *  PRIOR VACCINATION RECORDS  (Helpful in determining which vaccines are needed for your pet)

     *  SPAY/NEUTER CERTIFICATE  (Assists in verifying your pet's sterilization)

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.

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 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.
