More Than a Shelter Clinic

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

On Saturday, May 18 the Evanston Animal Shelter will host our Third Annual More Than a Shelter Clinic!

Sign up for a 15-minute time slot for your pet’s quick, easy, and free one-year rabies vaccination and microchip procedure!

Rabies vaccination is required by law in the state of Illinois. Protect your pet by having him or her vaccinated.

One in three pets will become lost within their lifetimes and when found and brought to shelters, registered, current microchips are the only way to quickly reunite you and your pet.

What is a microchip?
A microchip is a small computer chip about the size of a grain of rice. It is inserted in between your dog or cat’s shoulder blades; the process is quick and does not require anesthesia.

How will a microchip reunite me and my pet?
Registered microchips enter a national database that allow animal shelters to reconnect you and your pet. A handheld scanner is placed over the pet’s back and shoulders. If a microchip is present, the scanner will provide information on how to locate the owner.

How do I qualify for a free microchip and rabies vaccination?
Local residents with dogs and cats in need of rabies vaccinations and microchipping are eligible to register for our free clinic.

Can I bring more than one pet?
Yes, we encourage microchipping and vaccintion all of your dogs and cats.
