BROWARD COUNTY, FL - The Animal Care and Adoption Division will host a neighborhood Rabies Clinic for dogs and cats on Saturday, February 17th, from 9AM to 2PM, at Roosevelt Gardens Park, 2841 NW 11th Street, Fort Lauderdale, 33311.  

This year, FREE microchips will be available with the purchase of a rabies vaccine and Broward County Rabies Registration License tag. The microchips are funded by a grant provided by
PetSmart Charities® to help protect pets and increase their chances of getting back home if they become lost.

At the Clinic, dogs and cats will receive a one-year rabies vaccination and the Broward County Rabies Registration License tag. Cost will be:

  • $25 for dogs and cats that are spayed/neutered (sterilized)
  • $35 for pets that are not spayed/neutered (not sterilized)
Microchips, with free registration, will be administered at no cost.  Proof of rabies vaccination and registration will be required for pet owners whose pets have already received a rabies vaccine and County license tag and wish to get their pet microchipped. A microchip is a permanent form of identification which can be scanned by a veterinarian or animal shelter if a pet is lost so it can be returned to its owner. 

Debit/credit cards will be the only forms of payment accepted. Cards include Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

This program is for Broward County residents only. All dogs must be on leashes and all cats in carriers.

Remember, there is a $300 fine for failing to vaccinate your pet against rabies. You can also receive a $300 fine if your pet is vaccinated, but does not have a current Broward County registration tag.
