Not much in this world is free these days, but a local non-profit is helping you protect your pets at no cost! Humane Ohio and the Humane Society of the United States are hosting a free rabies vaccine clinic this weekend .
It is for both dogs and cats and it's open to any pet owner in Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan. Lisa Hochradel from Humane Ohio says you don't need an appointment, but it is on a first come first serve basis, "We are doing this because there is a huge need in the community. Rabies is a public health risk and it can be passed from animals to humans. We want to provide the protection for people and their pets who can't afford it."
The free rabies clinic is Saturday, October 1 at Walbridge Park. Licensed veterinarians will be giving the shots and everyone helping out is volunteering their time. It starts at ten in the morning and runs until two or until supplies run out. Walbridge park is across the street from the Toledo Zoo on Broadway.
