GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas – The Galveston County Animal Resource Center (ARC) is happy to host two low-cost pet vaccination clinics on Friday, Aug. 14 and Saturday, Aug. 15. Both clinics are open to residents of any city and will include pet microchipping and county registration. Please note, appointments are preferred. Walk-ins will be managed, if time allows. Masks are required to enter the building.
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.
County regulation requires pet owners who live in the municipalities served by the ARC (Bayou Vista, Hitchcock, Kemah, La Marque, Texas City, Tiki Island and unincorporated Galveston County) to register their pets.
