Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control is offering low-cost rabies vaccinations and microchipping for dogs and cats on Sunday, September 17, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The location is at the West Boynton Recreation Center, 6000 Northtree Blvd., between Hypoluxo Road and Gateway Boulevard off Jog Road.

The rabies vaccination is $5, the rabies license tag is $5 and the microchip is $5 per animal. All dogs must be on a leash and cats in a carrier.

Dogs and cats should be protected against rabies, a fatal disease. A rabies vaccination and tag are required by law for pets four months or older. All puppies and kittens less than four months are required by law to wear a juvenile rabies license tag. If an animal becomes lost, microchipping is good for pet identification at most veterinary offices and animal shelters.
