The city of Oak Ridge will have a rabies shot and microchip clinic for dogs and cats on Feb. 26.

The event will be in the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter at 395 Belgrade Road from noon to 5 p.m.

Rabies shots are required yearly of all domestic animals in Tennessee. Microchip identification products assist in the quick and efficient return of pets to their owners.

“City staff members are trained to scan every animal that comes into the shelter as an attempt to locate a rightful owner,” said Oak Ridge Police Sgt. Shannah Newman.

“The city of Oak Ridge also requires all animals that live within the city limits to be registered,” Newman added. “This service will also be provided during the clinic.”

Other types of annual vaccinations will not be given during this time.

Services and costs for this clinic include rabies shot, $12; microchip, $15; rabies shot and microchip, $27; microchip and city registration for altered animal, $18; microchip and city registration for unaltered animal, $25; microchip, rabies shot and city registration for altered animal, $30; microchip, rabies shot and city registration for unaltered animal, $35.
