Pinellas County Animal Services is offering a cats-only rabies clinic to encourage residents to get their feline pets current on rabies vaccines and licenses.
The clinic will be held at the Animal Services offices and adoption center at 12450 Ulmerton Road in Largo on Oct. 17 from 1–4 p.m. Owners who attend the clinic with their cats and kittens will receive $1 rabies vaccines and free microchipping with the purchase of a license.
The cats-only clinic is part of Animal Services efforts to increase cat reunification rates. Cat adoption fees will be waived. This special includes a medical checkup, spaying and neutering, vaccinations, internal and external parasite control, heartworm tests, feline leukemia testing and microchipping. The required Pinellas County license is also provided. Adoption counselors will be on hand to ensure the animals are being placed in good homes. The regular weekly rabies clinic for cats and dogs will be hosted on Oct. 18 from 1 - 4 p.m.
