CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — For the 34th consecutive year, residents throughout the Coastal Bend can take advantage of area-wide low-cost pet vaccination clinics.

Sponsored by Nueces County Animal Services, the low-cost clinics will be held in the outlying communities of Bishop, Agua Dulce, Banquete, Driscoll, and Bluntzer.

The fee for the rabies vaccination alone is $9.00, and other vaccines are also available upon request, at an additional charge.

“A primary function of Animal Services’ is to insure public safety by reducing the risk of the spread of diseases such as rabies”, said Juan Ramirez, Director of Nueces County Animal Services.

“These clinics are offered as part of our service to the community’s within Nueces County. By offering these clinics we are making it affordable as well as convenient for pet owners to comply with Texas State Law, which requires pet owners to vaccinate annually”, added Ramirez.

A licensed veterinarian will be on-hand to administer all vaccines as Nueces County Animal Services is hoping for a large turnout.

The clinics will be offered over two consecutive weekends with the first set of clinics being held this Saturday, March 26, at the Agua Dulce Senior Center from 9 a.m. to noon, then over in Banquete at the Senior Center from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
