Pickering Animal Services is partnering with the Durham Region Health Department and Millennium City Veterinary Hospital to host a low-cost, Rabies Vaccination & Microchip Clinic in Pickering.

The clinic will take place on Saturday, November 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Chestnut Hill Developments Recreation Complex’s O’Brien Room at 1867 Valley Farm Road. Each service is $25, and while cash payments are preferred, alternative payment options will be available.

Rabies vaccinations and microchips are important in keeping pets safe. A microchip is a form of identification that carries a unique ID number and is an effective way to ensure pets get reunited with their owners in case of separation.

“It is important to be a responsible pet owner and take the necessary steps to ensure that both people and pets in our community are kept safe,” said Lindsey Narraway, Supervisor, Animal Services. “Stay up-to-date on vaccinations and get your pet microchipped to ensure that if it is ever lost, we are able to bring you back together again.”

This is a drop-in clinic, and no registration is required. All pets must be kept on a leash or in a carrier.
