TCAP AND DASF TEAM UP TO PROVIDE FREE RABIES VACCINES
Free Rabies vaccines for Denton County cats and dogs Jan. 18, 2020 at Lake Dallas Animal Shelter
Lake Dallas, TX The Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP) and the Denton Animal Support Foundation (DASF) are teaming up to provide free rabies vaccines in Lake Dallas this Saturday, January 18 .
Free rabies vaccines will be provided on a walk-in basis from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. at Lake Dallas Animal Services, 687 N. Lakeview Drive.
“Rabies is required by law, but it’s also a deadly zoonotic disease,” said TCAP Executive Director Stacey Schumacher. “It’s important for your family’s health to ensure that your pet stays current on their Rabies vaccine. There is no cure for the Rabies virus. Our only defense is to stay away from potentially infected wildlife and to keep pets current on their vaccines.”
In addition to free rabies vaccines for Denton County pets, TCAP is offering half-price microchips for pets at the event. According to chip manufacturer, Home Again, 90 percent of pets without proper identification won’t return home. For lost pets, microchips provide a way for city shelter staff, or local veterinarians, to find you and reunite you with your pet.
