(Apple Valley)– The Apple Valley Animal Services Department has announced the 2018 schedule for its low-cost rabies vaccination clinics. The first session will be held at the Town’s municipal animal shelter on Feb. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. Rabies shots are $6 each and other vaccines are available at a reduced cost. Microchip services are only $20. Cash only please. Same-day license renewal is offered for town and unincorporated county residents only.
Additional vaccination clinics have been scheduled every other month in 2018. All clinics will be held on Wednesdays at the shelter from 5 to 7 p.m.:
- April 4
- June 6
- August 1
- December 5
The municipal animal shelter is located at 22131 Powhatan Road just east of Quinault Road. Vaccinations, licensing, adoptions and more will be offered at this year’s Paws N’ Claws Pet Fair on Oct. 20. Vaccination pricing ranges from $6 to $15. Low-income families may also qualify for assistance.
The pet fair is only one of several special events the shelter hosts to increase awareness about responsible pet ownership and raise funds to help defray the cost of adoptions, micro chips, medical expenses and more. The disco-themed Fur Ball will be held on April 14. The annual Cruisin’ Fur Critters Poker Run will take place on May 12 and three Junior Pet Keeper Camps have been scheduled to take place during the spring, summer and fall school breaks.
