Low Cost Rabies Clinic at Burton — Saturday
Nobody wants to lose a pet to something as awful as rabies and this low cost rabies clinic, sponsored by the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury, may be just the answer you need to keep yourself and your pets safe. Once your pet comes in contact with rabies, it's too late and, of course, rabies is almost always fatal, but tomorrow at Burton Coliseum, You'll have a chance to get your pet vaccinated at a very affordable price.
Just take your dog or cat to Burton Coliseum tomorrow between 7 a.m. until noon and they will vaccinate your pet. The price is $80 for dogs or cats that have been neutered or spayed. For dogs and cats that have not been fixed, the price is only $10.
While researching this information, I learned that it is illegal to not have your dog or cat vaccinated for rabies. I'm not real sure what the fine is, but I'll bet it's cheaper to get your pet their shots in the first place. Even if you have a so-called "inside" pet, they do go out from time to time and it only takes a moment for things to go horribly wrong.
Now, when you take your pet to the clinic tomorrow, keep in mind that all dogs have to be on a leash and all cats must be in a pet cage. The process should go pretty quickly, so you won't be in line all day. Check your records and see how long it's been since you updated your pet's rabies shots. You don't even have to get out of the car.
