Shelter Hosting Low-Cost Rabies Clinic In Annandale Sunday

The Fairfax County Animal Shelter will take its low-cost rabies vaccination clinic on the road to Annandale, hosting the Sunday, Sept. 18, clinic from 2-4 p.m. at the Mason District Governmental Center , 6507 Columbia Pike.

The cost for rabies shots at the clinic is $12.00 per dog, cat or ferret. All pets will receive a one-year rabies vaccine. To obtain a three-year vaccine, citizens must bring their pet’s rabies certificate showing the animal’s current rabies vaccination and vaccination expiration date.

Rabies certificates only — no tags — will be issued. All dogs should be on leashes and all cats and ferrets should be in carriers.

Fairfax County 2011 dog licenses will be sold separately at the clinic and cost $10.00 per dog.

The Annandale clinic is a partnership with the office of Supervisor Penelope A. “Penny” Gross and the Mason District station of the Fairfax County Police Department and is being sponsored by the Fairfax County Animal Shelter and Deepwood Veterinary Hospital.
