The Jackson County Animal Shelter will host a drive-thru pet vaccination event on Saturday.
The Jackson County Animal Shelter will host a low-cost drive-thru vaccination clinic on Saturday, Jan.15 for dogs and cats.
Pet owners should call the shelter at 541-774-6654 before Friday to make an appointment, or reserve a spot by going online at fotas.org/vaccinations.
The refuge is located at 5595 S. Pacific Highway, between Phoenix and Talent. People have to wear masks at the clinic while driving.
Sick animals, on antibiotics, in heat or on cortisone cannot be vaccinated.
Vaccines must be paid for in cash as the money goes to a veterinarian. Rabies vaccines are available for dogs and cats for $ 10 each. Distemper / parvo booster shots for dogs cost $ 15 each, and distemper / rhino / calici booster shots for cats cost $ 15 each.
All dogs 6 months and older are required by law to be rabies vaccinated and licensed.
A dog license is also available at the drive-thru. License fees can be paid by cash, check, or debit / credit card. License fees for dogs vary depending on whether a dog is licensed for one year or three years, and there are discounts for people 61 and over, as well as veterans.
When you call for an appointment, ask the shelter staff for the license fee for your dog (s).
