Dedham Rabies and Microchip Clinic Returns

ARL Dedham to Offer Discounted Rabies Vaccines and Microchips

Historically an annual event, the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s (ARL) rabies and microchip clinic in Dedham missed 2016 due to construction. However with the state-of-the-art shelter facility completed, the clinic is ready to get back on track! From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 8, ARL in Dedham will offer the following discounted services:

Microchips $20

($15 for senior citizens)

Rabies Vaccine $10

($7 for senior citizens)

Pet owners should bring the certificate from the animals’ last vaccination. If they are within the date range (before the vaccination expires), ARL can give the animal a 3-year vaccine, but without proper documentation, it will only be a 1-year vaccine. 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 dedham@arlboston.org.
