In recognition of World Rabies Day, Lake Humane Society is holding a Rabies Clinic from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, at its facility at 7564 Tyler Blvd., (Building E) in Mentor.
Lake Humane Society welcomes members of the community to bring their cats and dogs (no other type of animals) to get a rabies vaccination for just $10.
Both one-year and three-year vaccinations will be available. This is a walk-in clinic, so there might be a wait.
LHS also will offer microchipping at a discounted price of $20 (regularly $25).
Microchipping is the fastest and easiest way to reunite owners with their lost pet.
Pets must be vaccinated for rabies in order to be microchipped.
If they have already had their rabies vaccination prior to the clinic, LHS requires proof of vaccination.
The following are clinic guidelines:
* Cash or credit card payment only, no checks
* Animals must be secured on a leash or in a carrier
* For safety reasons, LHS will not vaccinate aggressive animals or feral cats
* LHS reserves the right to refuse to vaccinate any animal for any reason
* Animals must be at least 4 months old to get vaccinated.
Since 1937, the Lake Humane Society has been dedicated to the welfare and protection of animals.
Operating as a private, nonprofit organization in Lake County, and the surrounding metropolitan areas, it is focused on the relief of suffering and the prevention of cruelty and abuse to animals.
The shelter strives to inform and educate children and adults in the humane and respectful treatment of all living creatures.
Donations are always welcomed.
If you have any questions, or want more information, call Jennifer Sperry, Lake Shelter operations manager and humane agent,at 440-951-6122, ext. 106, or email email@example.com.
