Dog and cat owners in central Virginia got a special discount toward safety services for their pets Sunday.

The Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA held their fall rabies clinic to get more pets vaccinated.

Hundreds of dogs and cats streamed through the facility for the treatment. This is also the first time the SPCA offered a microchipping service for the animals.

"We're very fond of microchips here because when dogs are brought in my animal control or by a community member, one of the first things we do is scan them for a microchip. So we're very happy when they have one, so that we can contact the owner and get them back faster," said CASPCA veterinarian Kristen Scheller.

Veterinarians say it's an important public safety measure to get your pets vaccinated.
