WHS Offering Microchip and Rabies Clinic
MILWAUKEE – In recognition of World Rabies Day on September 8, the Wisconsin Humane Society is holding a Rabies Vaccination and Microchip clinic. The clinic will be held from August 29 through September 1 and September 5 through September 8. For a $5.00 non-refundable application fee, you can qualify to participate in this great event.
The rabies vaccination protects your animal against the rabies virus and is required by some municipalities in order to get your animal licensed. The virus attacks the nervous system and is fatal once it has reached the brain. Vaccinations are imperative to protect the health of your companion animal.
Microchipping offers you a permanent method of identifying your pet if he or she was to get lost or stolen. Veterinary offices, animal control centers, humane societies and pounds are all equipped with microchip scanners, which help reunite guardians with missing animals.
Income guidelines do apply and participants must register beforehand, so please call Peggy Volkert at 414-431-6132 to schedule an appointment today!
