Broward County Animal Care and Adoption
Broward County Animal Care and Adoption will host a Rabies Clinic on Saturday, January 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Colohatchee Park, 1975 N.E. 15 Ave., Wilton Manors.
Pet owners will be able to have their dog or cat vaccinated against rabies and receive a Broward County Pet Registration tag. Cost for a one-year rabies vaccination and registration tag is $15 per pet. Only cash payments will be accepted.
To qualify, pet owners must provide proof of Broward County residency such as a valid Florida driver's license or a current utility bill. No appointment is necessary and customers are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. All dogs must be on leashes and all cats must be in carriers.
Broward County’s Animal Care and Adoption is dedicated to providing shelter for lost and surrendered animals as well as the successful adoption of homeless pets. The agency also coordinates the registration of dogs and cats and provides rabies vaccinations to encourage a healthier pet population.
