The Animal Welfare League of Scioto County has completed its 25th year of providing reduced rate pet vaccinations to area residents. The number of locations has varied since 1987. With anywhere from four to five locations in the past, the League has since seen a need to add a sixth. As of last year, Nile Township Fire Station joined other fire stations at Minford, Porter Township, Valley Township, Washington Township and Sierra’s Haven.
Clinics are offered the first Saturday of May and the first Saturday of June; usually three locations per event. Scioto County Veterinarians generously donate their time and expertise at these locations. The numbers of participants increase every year. The six locations this year vaccinated or heartworm tested 385 dogs and 37 cats. Pet vaccination clinics are not based on income but available to all. More information on this and other Animal Welfare League programs can be obtained by calling 740-858-2446.
