FREE Microchips & Vaccines – Nov 17!

Wagging Dog Rescue is pleased to host ANOTHER FREE MICROCHIP CLINIC and this time we’re throwing in VACCINES (for dogs) too!
Sunday, November 17th from 10-2pm at Elston Hay & Grain in Ramona – 2220 Main Street

Is your pet microchipped?
With the holidays coming up, it’s time to make sure your furry family members have the added protection of a registered microchip. A microchip is an invaluable tool to help owners reunite with their lost pets as quickly as possible. We hope no one’s dog or cat will get out and get lost this holiday, but accidents happen and chips really do work. There are cases of microchips reuniting pets and owners even years after being separated!

Is your dog vaccinated?
The goal of animal vaccination is to effectively reduce the extent and severity of infectious disease in our pets. Although risk of exposure is rare, dogs in Southern California may be exposed to a number of deadly diseases, including but not limited to canine distemper virus, parvovirus, adenovirus, and rabies. Wagging Dog Rescue does not support over-vaccinating our pets, but we also do not support the anti-vaccination movement. Vaccines are necessary.

Additional Event Information

MICROCHIPS and VACCINES are offered on a first come first served basis, rain or shine! No appointment necessary and chips and vaccines are FREE while supplies last. We have 100 chips, 50 canine combo vaccines, and 50 canine rabies vaccines to give away to responsible pet owners. Bring your fur babies to our clinic for a free microchip and free vaccines if they are not chipped or vaccinated already!

  • We can chip dogs and cats (sorry, no livestock or other types of animal family members).
  • All cats must be in secure carriers.
  • All dogs must be leashed.
  • All dogs will be muzzled prior to services being provided.
  • Vaccines are for dogs only. If you have your dog’s last vaccine records, please bring them with you. Vaccines are good for 1 year from service date *unless you have records showing the date of your dog’s last vaccine(s).*

** This event is for personal owned pets only. No breeders, no rescue groups. Thank you. **
*This clinic is being held in Ramona but is open to pet owners/residents of anywhere 🙂 It’s not where you live that’s important – having a healthy pet is what matters!*
