Has Your Pet Had Its Rabies Shots?

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA – Two Mother Lode counties are holding rabies vaccination clinics, and one is also offering microchips for pets.

Both welcome dogs and cats. In Tuolumne County, animal control will be holding a rabies vaccination clinic this Saturday, June 3, at its shelter located at 10040 Victoria Way in Jamestown, behind C & C Mini Mart. The cost is $10, and they only take cash or checks. Owners are also asked to bring their renewal forms for each pet to speed up the process.

Shelter officials added, “Rabies is a virus that is 100% fatal to dogs and cats. Proper rabies vaccination protocols save lives.”

Additionally, all dogs in Tuolumne County must be licensed, and those can also be bought at the clinic for a reduced rate. Another rabies clinic will be held Wednesday, June 7th, at 6 p.m. at Eproson Park in Twain Harte.

Friends of Calaveras Animal Services and Calaveras County Animal Services have joined forces to provide a series of free rabies vaccine and microchip clinics for county residents. Shelter officials provided these details:

  • June 10 – 9:00 am to 12:00 pm – Calaveras County Government Center – 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas
  • RABIES ONLY – September 9 – 9:00 am to 12:00 pm – Spence Ranch Feed – 1291 Highway 49, Angels Camp
  • October 14 – 9:00 am to 12:00 pm – Calaveras County Government Center – 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas

Questions on these events can be directed to Calaveras County Animal Services at 209-754-6509.

All cats must be in secure carriers and dogs must be on a leash for both the Tuolumne and Calaveras clinics.
