TOPPENISH, Wash. — The Yakima Humane Society will hold a low-cost vaccine and microchip clinic for cats and dogs on Saturday at Railroad Park.

The clinic will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the park on Asotin Avenue. Pets must be at least 8 weeks old to receive vaccines and 12 weeks old to receive a rabies vaccine.

All dogs must be leashed. Cats must be in a proper pet carrier. Appointments are not necessary. Vaccines for canine DA2PP, Feline HCP and rabies are $10 each. A three-year rabies vaccine is also available. A microchip is $15.

Pet owners may also get three for $30, and the Humane Society will have the Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccine available upon request for $10.

Wait times could be long as these low-cost clinics can draw hundreds of people. Also, due to the high volume of unvaccinated animals attending this event, pets will be at a higher risk for contracting a pet-related illness. Yakima Humane will not be held liable if pets become ill.

Tickets aren’t required. Call 509-457-6854 for more information or visit www.yakimahumane.org or www.facebook.com/yakimahumane.
