Final rabies vaccination clinic scheduled

The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury:

LAKE CHARLES, LA – In an effort to prevent the spread of Rabies Infection, the Office of Animal Services will hold its final rabies clinic for pet owners in Calcasieu Parish. The location and time has been changed to the 9th Grade Campus of Sulphur High School on June 12th, from 8am – 3pm.

Pet owners will have the opportunity to get rabies vaccinations for their pets at a reduced cost at the clinic. Altered animal rates are reduced even further. Vaccination and licensing rates for spay/neutered animals is $8. Unaltered pets will cost $10. Residents are encouraged to reduce wait times by bringing their pet's license from last year and the exact amount for services. Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a portable kennel.

Coke and Domino's Pizza will be at the clinic selling food and refreshments to the public.  Domino's has generously agreed to donate a portion of their sales back to the Animal Services fund. Other vendors showcasing pet-related items are expected to attend as well as a licensed dog trainer who will be available to answer questions pertaining to pet training and local animal rescue organizations.

Law requires that once a pet is vaccinated by a licensed Louisiana Veterinarian and licensed in Calcasieu it must wear the license tag in all areas of the Parish. Both the Parish and other municipal ordinances require all dogs and cats over the age of three months be vaccinated for rabies and licensed.

For more information call Calcasieu Parish Animal Services and Adoption Center at 721-3730.
