HARFORD COUNTY, MD – A community pet vaccination clinic will be held on February 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fallston Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Company, 2201 Carrs Mill Rd., Fallston. Vaccines, nail trims and microchips will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis and appointments are not required.
The event is hosted by the Humane Society of Harford County in partnership with the Harford County Health Department.
“Pets are family members and they deserve to be healthy,” said HSHC Executive Director Bob Citrullo. “Our goal is to make basic vaccines affordable for pet parents who are facing financial challenges and cannot afford a regular relationship with a veterinarian.”
The clinic will offer distemper and Bordetella for dogs, distemper for cats and rabies vaccines for dogs, cats and ferrets. Vaccines are $10 each. Pets can also be microchipped at the clinic for $25. Heart to Heart Mobile Pet Care, LLC will be onsite, offering nail trims for $20 per animal.
Animals must be at least four months old for vaccination. To ensure everyone’s safety, dogs must be on a non-retractable leash with a properly fitted collar and cats and ferrets must be kept securely inside the carrier. The pet’s most recent previous rabies certificate with a veterinarian’s signature or stamp must be presented to receive a 3-year rabies vaccination.
