Marion County Rabies Clinics ScheduledMarion County Animal Control Administrator Dr. A.J. Sprague begins his free rabies vacinnation clinics across the county Friday night.
Sprague has conducted the clinics the past 28 years to try and assure all pets receive vaccinations. "In order to participate, all someone has to do is show up with their dog or cat. The one year rabies vaccination is absolutely free. Show up at any of the assigned places and we will vaccinate your pet," said Sprague.
Sprague will also provide information to everyone coming to the clinic on care of their pets. He reports there is also an option for pets to be microchipped. "Microchipping is certainly a good idea. It is a fool proof identification. It's half cost. It cost $15 at the rabies clinics. We'll do that as well if someone want to do it strictly on a voluntary basis," said Sprague.
