CASPCA Hosts Low-Cost Rabies Vaccine Clinic

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of pet owners in central Virginia commemorated World Rabies Day by getting their pets' shots up to date.

On Sunday, the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA hosted a low-cost rabies vaccine clinic where cats and dogs could get the three-year vaccine for only $10.  The SPCA says the event protects pets and helps their owners follow the law.   

Beth McPhee with the CASPCA said, "Rabies is very prevalent in Virginia and … the law requires now that animals get their rabies vaccination by the age of 4 months…and for a lot of people it's a little difficult to afford."

Sunday's clinic vaccinated 240 cats and dogs to protect them from rabies.
