Temple Citians are highly encouraged to bring their dogs and cats to the City’s annual Rabies Clinic on Friday, July 10, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Temple City Park, 9701 Las Tunas Dr.
Community Companion Animal Hospital will provide low-cost rabies vaccinations at a fee of $5 per immunization. As required by state law, any dog over four months old must receive a rabies vaccination. The primary shot is valid for one year, and subsequent shots are acceptable for three years.
Residents can also purchase dog licenses at City Hall during the clinic. Licenses for unaltered dogs are $60, while altered dogs are $20. Seniors ages 65 years or older may license their altered dog for $7.50. Seniors may only license one altered dog per household at the discounted price. A dog license is required to verify a rabies vaccination, and must be valid for an entire licensing period (i.e., July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016).
Also at the clinic, the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society will provide inexpensive micro-chipping at a fee of $15 per pet. The City adopted Title 10 of the Los Angeles County Code, which includes mandatory spay/neuter and micro-chipping provisions.
Dogs must be on a leash and cats in a carrier at all times during the clinic. For more information, call the City’s Public Safety Division at (626) 285-7187.
