Vet clinic offers free rabies vaccinations

Posted: Updated:

MURPHYSBORO -- Wright-Way Rescue and TimberTrails Low-Cost Veterinary Services free rabies vaccines for dogs and cats Thursday afternoon.

A no-kill rescue shelter and vet clinic, the free vaccinations were given to the first 200 dogs and cats through the door. It's an effort to give to those whose owners cannot afford annual rabies protection.

"We don't want to see animals not claimed at animal control facilities because their owners couldn't afford to vaccinate them for rabies," said director Christy Anderson. "So we've decided to offer the service free this holiday season."

People lined out the door waiting to get their pets vaccinated. In addition to the free rabies vaccine, pet owners could add a distemper shot for only $15.
