This Sunday, as part of Animal Shelter Awareness month, a vaccine and microchipping clinic for cats and dogs will be held outside the city’s animal shelter. Rabies, DHLPP, kennel cough, and FVRCP vaccines will be available for $10 each, but those in need will not be turned away for lack of funds. Microchips, which identify lost pets and help return them to their owners, will be available for $15, but this fee can also be waived for those in need. Dog licenses and low-cost spay/neuter vouchers are also available to Berkeley residents.
The clinic will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 25,
outside Berkeley Animal Care Services at 2013 Second Street (between
Hearst & Addison).
All dogs must be brought to the clinic on a leash (small dogs may be in carriers), and all cats must be in carriers.
For information call 510-981-6603.
October 2009 has been declared Animal Shelter Awareness Month by the Berkeley City Council. The Berkeley Animal Welfare Fund is raising funds for construction of Berkeley’s planned new animal shelter.
