Rabies and Microchip Clinic

Rabies shot:$10.00

Microchip (including registration): $30.00

Please bring proof of a prior rabies shot (a rabies certificate, not a tag) to get a three-year rabies shot. Without it, your pet will receive a one-year shot. Waiting is outdoors, so please dress for the weather. All dogs must be on leash and cats must be in carriers.

Give your pet the protection of a 24PetWatch MiniChip. At one third the size of standard microchip technology, the 24PetWatch MiniChip is the right size for every pet, including cats, kittens, and small breed dogs which often go without microchip protection.

Because this is the first clinic of 2014, we expect a crowd. We will serve as many people as possible during the two-hour clinic, but will have to end at 8:30pm. Other options for low-cost vaccinations are Luv My Pet, Potomac Spay Neuter Clinic, and the Fairfax County reduced cost rabies clinics (703-691-2131).

Start: April 24, 2014 6:30 pm

Baby-Ready Pets Class

Babies and petsEvery year, thousands of animals are turned into shelters by parents concerned about how their pet may affect the health and safety of their new baby. Any pet can have undesirable, although natural reactions to a new baby. New sounds, smells, and activities surrounding an infant may cause a pet to see the baby as competition, prey, or even a toy.

Baby-Ready Pets offers preparation and assistance to help expectant families prepare their home and their pets for the arrival of the new baby and to make sure that it is a safe and (relatively) stress-free experience for all. This seminar is based on a program created by the Providence Animal Rescue League and the Rhode Island SPCA, and has been endorsed by the ASPCA. The Animal Welfare League of Arlington?s staff will present Baby-Ready Pets for expectant parents in a two-hour workshop at the League.

After the program, participants may call or e-mail follow-up questions if they need additional support. Participants will also receive helpful handouts and a CD of baby sounds to help desensitize their pets to the sounds of the new arrival. This is a HUMAN-ONLY class, please leave your pets at home.

There is no fee for the class, but donations are welcome. Reservations are required and space is limited. To make a reservation or for more information, please e-mail amintz@awla.org or call (703) 931-9241 x246 with the following information:

the number and type of pets that you have in your home (including breed and size);
