As part of the ongoing effort to promote pet owner responsibility in all Southern California communities, participating agencies in San Bernardino County will offer free microchipping and rabies vaccinations for all dogs being licensed for the first time through the respective agencies or having their licenses renewed, in specific cases. Free vaccination and microchip services can also be obtained if the dog owner agrees to license their dog at the clinics. In specific locations, additional vaccines may be available for dogs at a minimal cost and dog owners are encouraged to call the respective agency if the owner should have any questions prior to arriving at the clinic.
The following agencies will hold their clinic on Saturday, Feb. 9: Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA, Yucca Valley Animal Shelter, Rancho Cucamonga Animal Services, Redlands Animal Control, Barstow Humane Society, Hesperia Animal Services, Upland Animal Services, and San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control. The Town of Apple Valley Animal Services will hold their clinic on Wednesday, Feb. 6.
“This is a great opportunity and we are so excited to partner with other agencies to help dog owners all across San Bernardino County. Keeping pets healthy and with their owners is critical to our goals,” explained Bill Harford, President/CEO of the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA. This is collaborative effort of all agencies listed, to expand animal welfare services to pets and people in the largest county in the continental United States.
