GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas – The Galveston County Animal Resource Center (ARC) is happy to host two low-cost pet vaccination clinics on Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21. Both clinics are open to residents of any city and will include pet microchipping and county registration.
Low-Cost Vet Vaccinations
Low-cost vaccinations, flea control and heartworm testing and treatment services through ARC range from $15 for a rabies vaccine for both dogs and cats to $60 for the dog package and $45 for the cat package. Specific pricing is online at www.gchd.org/arc.
Microchips and Registration
Microchips are available for all cats and dogs, regardless of jurisdiction, for just $20 each.
