Dedham Rabies and Microchip Clinic @ Animal Rescue League of Boston
Apr 8 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Microchips $20 ($15 for senior citizens)

Rabies Vaccine $10 ($7 for senior citizens)

Why have these services done? Rabies vaccines are mandated by law for all dogs and cats, and having a microchip implanted greatly increases the odds of your furry friend returning home if he/she decides to wander off and is taken in by a local shelter or Animal Control Officer. Walk-ins welcome, and for more information, call the Dedham shelter at 781-326-0729 or email at
