The clinic last year drew over 200 residents.

Shafter Animal Control, in conjunction with Kern County Animal Services, will be holding a Low Cost Vaccination and License Clinic on Saturday, May 18, at Mannel Park in Shafter.

All dogs must be on a leash and all cats must be in a carrier. Also, aggressive dogs must be muzzled and under adult supervision at all times. Trying to encourage residents to be responsible dog and cat owners, Animal Control is offering this low-cost clinic to help residents offset costs of being a pet owner.

Costs for the clinic are: FVRCP vaccination -- all cats, $12; DHPP vaccination -- all dogs, $12, Canine influenza -- $12, Rabies vaccinations for all dogs and cats, $12. They can also get their pets microchipped for just $15. Dog licenses for unaltered dogs are $35 for one year, $65 for two years, and $100 for three years. The cost for altered dogs are one year for $15, two years for $20 and three years for $25. Shafter Animal Control is also partnering with Critters Without Litters this year for the event. Critters Without Litters offers spaying and neutering at a reduced cost for pet owners. Ask the staff at the event for more details regarding getting your pet spayed or neutered.

A free one-year license is available with proof of rabies vaccination purchase.
