Drive-Thru Rabies Vaccination Clinic at Burton is May 19
Hours are 7 a.m.-noon
The drive-thru rabies vaccination clinic at the Burton Coliseum Complex has been rescheduled for 7 a.m. - noon, Saturday, May 19 in the coliseum’s parking lot, 7001 Gulf Highway, Lake Charles.
The event had been scheduled for April 14, but was canceled due to rain.
The vaccination and licensing fee for an animal who is already spayed or neutered is $8. For an unaltered pet, the fee is $10. Microchipping will also be available at the clinics.
All cats must be in portable kennels.
Residents can pay with cash or checks only – no debit or credit cards will be accepted.
Calcasieu Parish and Louisiana state codes require all dogs and cats over 3 months of age be vaccinated and licensed. These drive-thru clinics help prevent the spread of the rabies infection and once vaccinated, your pet is required to wear a rabies license tag. Cat owners are encouraged to place the tag on a humane, breakaway collar.
A reminder: the legal definition of a pet owner is “any person, business or any other legal entity that provides care, harbors, acts as custodian, or permits and animal to remain on or about his premises.” In the event someone is bitten, this person or entity could be held responsible.
