HOUSTON – Pet owners residing in unincorporated Harris County will have an opportunity to have their dogs or cats microchipped and vaccinated for free during a May 12 event hosted by Harris County Pets and Spring Fire Department.
The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon (or until supplies run out) at Spring FD’s Station 74 on 23803 Aldine Westfield in Spring, Texas.
The free services include vaccinations, including rabies, as well as microchipping, and will be offered to the first 100 animals on a first-come, first-served basis. All animals must be restrained on a leash or confined in a crate or carrier to receive these services.
A photo ID is required for participating pet owners to show proof of residence in unincorporated Harris County. There is no limit on the number of animals per participating household.
Staff from Harris County Precinct 4 Commissioner R. Jack Cagle’s Office will also be assisting during the May 12 event.
If pet owners miss the chance to take part in the free May 12 event, they can still have their pets microchipped and vaccinated for a low cost at the Harris County Pets Clinic at 612 Canino Road in Houston. All appointments at Harris County Pets must be made by calling (281) 999-3191.
