The Galveston County Animal Resource Center (ARC) is happy to host a low-cost pet vaccination clinic on Saturday, Oct. 20. The event, open to residents of any city, will also include pet microchipping and county registration.
Low-Cost Vet Vaccinations
Low-cost vaccinations, flea control and heartworm testing and treatment services through ARC range from $15 for a rabies vaccine for both dogs and cats to $50 for the “dog works” package and $35 for the “cat works” package. Specific pricing is online at www.gchd.org/arc.
Microchips and Registration
Microchips are available for all cats and dogs, regardless of jurisdiction, for just $20 each.
County regulation requires pet owners who live in the municipalities served by the ARC (Bayou Vista, Hitchcock, Kemah, La Marque, Texas City, Tiki Island and unincorporated Galveston County) to register their pets. There is no registration fee for pets that are already microchipped. Registration for pets that are not microchipped is $20 and includes a microchip. The fee is $15 for pet owners age 65 and older.
The event will take place at ARC, located at 3412 25th Avenue North (Loop 197 North) in Texas City from noon-3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20. Appointments are not needed. Cash, check and major credit cards are accepted. For more information, call the ARC at 409-948-2485.
