The Pennsylvania SPCA has recently launched its latest series of low-cost vaccine clinics at its headquarters located at 350 E. Erie Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Subsequent clinics will be held every Wednesday and the first Saturday of every month also from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Vaccines, including rabies, which is required by Pennsylvania for all pets, will be available to the public at substantial discounts and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis
The cost of a Distemper and Rabies vaccine package for both dogs and cats is only $20 (normally $35 for cats and $40 for dogs) with no appointment necessary. A vaccine can save an animal from a fatal, yet completely preventable, disease. You can also acquire information about microchipping for identification, flea and tick prevention and licenses.
Also, starting this week, the PSPCA’s low cost veterinary clinic will be extending its hours for 3 days a week, Tuesday to Thursday from 8am to 8pm to make it more convenient for people to seek the affordable medical attention needed for their pets.
