City and county team up to help pet owners with affordable vaccinations.
The City of Santa Clarita in cooperation with Los Angeles County is sponsoring the Annual Pet Vaccination Clinic that will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 17 at Santa Clarita Park. The offered services for dog owners who attend the Clinic include low-cost vaccinations, license renewal and micro-chipping for their pet.
The vaccinations offered include Rabies for $6, the six-in-one vaccination, which includes Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenze and Parvovius, for $14 and the Bordetella vaccination for $11. Rabies vaccinations are required by state law for all dogs over four months old. The pet micro-chipping will also be offered and will be free of charge.
To renew or receive a license for your dog proof of spay or neuter is required, so bring your pet’s Certificate of Sterility. The prices to purchase your license at the pet clinic are as follows: “spayed or neutered dog” – $20 and an “unaltered dog” – $60 (to qualify for the “unaltered” license fee you must fill out and have Exemption Application.) Additionally, there is a discount offered to seniors, allowing them to obtain a license for their dogs for $7.50. Most dog licenses expire by June 30 and if not renewed by this date, a penalty fee may incur.
Dogs must be on appropriate leashes with adequate collars to receive a vaccination or a license. Both cash and check will be accepted at the pet clinic. If you are licensing and vaccinating your dog and paying by check, please bring a separate check for each service.
