Rabies only clinic April 10
The Williams Animal Action Group (WAAG) will hold its 25th Annual Vaccination Clinic at the Williams Rodeo Barn. The clinic will be offered noon-3 p.m. April 10.
The 25th Annual Vaccination Clinic will continue with rabies vaccinations for $6 each, including the certificate. Pet owners can also purchase city dog licenses with proof of current rabies vaccination. City tags are $10 for dogs that are spayed or neutered (bring proof of surgery for females) and $20 for fertile dogs.
The plan is to try to have three lines this year to speed up the paperwork process for the rabies certificate. Here's what you can do to help:
Leave your dog outside until the paperwork is completed.
Bring your old rabies certificate. It has most of the information WAAG needs .
Bring exact change if possible.
Let WAAG volunteers know right away if your dog has "an accident" so the area can be cleaned and sterilized.
The first rabies shot a pet gets is good for one year. After that, they are good for three years. If your pet's last three-year rabies shot was 2007, it's due for a booster.
For more information, call Kali Kaliche at (928) 635-2595.
