WILLIAMSON COUNTY ANIMAL CENTER
Community rabies clinics presented by Williamson County Animal Center continue on Saturday, April 13, at three locations.
Recently, the Tennessee Department of Health confirmed rabies in one skunk in Williamson County. WCAC reminds area residents to vaccinate their pets against the deadly rabies virus. Protecting pets from this fatal illness is safe, easy and effective. The State of Tennessee requires all dogs, cats and ferrets to be current on rabies vaccinations.
Clinics are open to the public and staffed by local veterinary clinics. Rabies shots are $10 per pet. Please bring cash or a check for payment. Dogs must be leashed and cats must be in carriers. Microchips are available only at the Williamson County Animal Center location (April 27) for an additional fee of $15 per pet.
Note: Clinics could be cancelled in the event of severe weather.
