You can vaccinate your pet against common illnesses for $10 a pop on Oct. 21.
The vaccine clinic will be at the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter that Sunday afternoon, offering $10 vaccines and $25 microchips for dogs and cats.
The event is a fundraiser for the Society of Humane Friends’ low-cost spay and neuter clinic and the jail dog and cat program run by the Society of Humane Friends and the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office.
Dog vaccines including those for bordatella, lepto, rabies and DHPP (distemper) and cat vaccines including those for rabies, bordatella and FVRCCP (rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia) will be available at the event. Microchips are inserted with an injection, similar to a vaccine. They help identify pets if they run away or get lost without wearing another kind of identification, like a collar.
All dogs brought to the event must be leashed and all cats must be in a carrier. The event runs from 2 to 4 p.m. at the shelter, located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville.
