HSWC Announces Dates for 2018 Low Cost Rabies Clinics
The Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC) has announced dates for the 2018 Washington County Low Cost Rabies Vaccination, Microchip and Licensing Clinics.
The two offsite clinics provide an important service to the community by offering an opportunity for area residents to protect their animals against a highly infectious and dangerous disease. These clinics help further the HSWC’s mission of encouraging responsible pet guardianship of animals that already have a loving home.
“HSWC is pleased to help Washington County fulfill its requirement to provide rabies vaccination clinics to its citizens,” said President/CEO Kimberley Intino. “We are happy that, in addition to the Wellness Clinics offered at the shelter, we are also able to provide clinics at offsite locations to better serve our community.”

No checks please.
