NE GA Animal Shelter Fall Rabies Clinic is Saturday, Oct. 2

The Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter will hold its fall rabies clinic this Saturday at the shelter on Bear Creek Road in Lavonia.

Shelter Manager Tammie Jourdenais tells WLHR News the clinic will be held from 10a to 2p for anyone who wants to bring their dog or cat to get a rabies vaccine.

Jourdenais said, however, this year, the cost for a rabies shot and other vaccines has increased slightly.

“This is the first time we’ve raised the price of a rabies shot in at least 10 years,” she said. “A one-year rabies shot is now $7, a three-year $15, distemper shots for dogs and cats are $9, kennel cough is also $9, and microchips are $25.”

The shelter does two rabies clinics every year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Shots are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. All dogs must be on a leash and cats in carriers.

If you prefer, the vet can come out to your car to vaccinate your animals instead of bringing them inside.

And as in past rabies clinics, the only form of payment is cash or check, no debit or credit cards will be accepted.

Again, Saturday’s fall rabies clinic takes place at the Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter from 10a to 2p.

Adoptions will also be taking place Saturday from 11a to 4p.
