Pet Helpers joins forces with the Ravenel Tractor Supply Company to offer low-cost vaccine and microchips clinics. These clinics provide an opportunity for local pet owners to keep their dogs and cats safe and compliant at affordable prices.
South Carolina state law requires dogs and cats to be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian. The minimum age to vaccinate puppies and kittens against rabies is 3 months. Once vaccinated, pets are required to wear a numbered metal license tag attached to a collar or harness.
The Ravenel Tractor Supply Company is located at 4405 Savannah Highway. Canine and feline rabies and distemper shots will be available for $10.
As an added service, Pet Helpers is offering low cost microchips. Hurricanes and tropical storms threaten the South Carolina coast every year. If your pet is accidently separated from you during a natural disaster or an emergency evacuation, he can be scanned for a microchip and returned to you quickly. Microchips will be offered for $15 during this event.
The veterinary staff and volunteers from Pet Helpers will be available at this low-cost rabies and microchip clinic to answer questions you may have about the health and safety of your dog and/or cat.
