Low-cost vaccine clinic offered on Sat., April 25

The Evans County Humane Society will host its annual Low-Cost Vaccine Clinic on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. behind the Evans County Recreation Dept. on Hwy 280.
All local dog and cat owners are welcome to bring their pets, but are required to do so on leashes or in carriers, keeping their pets properly restrained. “For cats, that should be a carrier. The dogs definitely need to be on a leash,” said Dr. Anna Lewis Smith, DVM, Humane Society president.
If the dog is in anyway aggressive, Smith says it’s not a problem, but that pet owners should advise them ahead of time and keep the dog in the car. “We can walk out to their vehicle and vaccinate that dog,” she said.
Rabies shots, available for both dogs and cats, are $5 for a one year license and $10 for a three year license. The three year vaccination is recognized by the State of Georgia and the Dept. of Agriculture. Pet owners need to know whether or not their pet has ever been vaccinated. “That’s important when we determine whether or not the pet is eligible for a three-year license or not,” Smith explained.
