Owners of dogs and cats in need of rabies vaccinations are invited to bring their pet companions to the low cost Rabies Clinic at the Humane Society of Scott County from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14th. The rabies vaccination fee is $7.50. All dogs must be on leashes and cats must be in carriers. Bring previous rabies vaccination paperwork if available.

ATTENTION MILITARY FAMILIES! Thanks to a grant from the Rock Island Arsenal Welcome Club, 13 military families, currently in service to our country and veterans, can bring a dog or cat to one of our rabies clinics and have their pet companion vaccinated FREE. Please present a valid ID. Only one pet per military family, please, so that we may serve as many families as made possible by the grant.

For more information, contact the Humane Society of Scott County at (563) 388-6655.
