As a service to city residents, the DC Department of Health is hosting a free animal vaccination clinic this Saturday June 5th to help pet owners comply with the DC law which requires that all cats & dogs over four months old be vaccinated against rabies and distemper. The clinic will feature free vaccinations for both cats and dogs from 1-4pm at Fire Station #33 (101 Atlantic Street SE). Cats and dogs must be at least three (3) months old to receive a rabies vaccination, and all pets must be brought to the clinic by a responsible adult. Dogs must be secured on a leash and cats must be secured in a carrier box. Rabies & distemper shots are free with the purchase of a DC dog license, and the license fee is $15 for a spayed or neutered dog and $50 for an unspayed or unneutered dog. Dog license fees must be paid by check or money order payable to "DC Treasurer"; no cash will be accepted at the clinic.
