Friends of the Animals will host a low-cost vaccination and microchip clinic for all area residents from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 10. No appointment is necessary.
The clinic will be in the southeast corner of highways 198 and 334 in Gun Barrel City in the red brick office strip just behind and east of the Huddle House Restaurant.
Dogs must be on leash and cats must be in carriers. Surgery is done by appointment only.
A rabies shot will cost $15, the parvo, distemper, etc shot for dogs or the equivalent for cats will cost $17.
The feline leukemia vaccination will be available as well at a cost of $17. There is a surcharge on each service for those animals not spayed/neutered to be reimbursed at time of or with proof of surgery.
The clinic accepts most credit or debit cards, in addition to checks or cash and is open to everyone, anywhere.
This clinic will also offer microchipping to cats or dogs for $25. A tiny chip is inserted into the scruff of the pet, which can be read by a scanner available at shelters/veterinary offices everywhere, which includes permanent national registration.
Also available for sale at any time is Activyl for cats or Simparica for dogs over 6 months, flea prevention products from Merck and Novartis.
Friends of the Animals Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic has been open since July 2002 and has neutered over 47,000 animals in that time, saving and preventing literally millions of little lives.
