World Rabies Day 2012

On Saturday, September 29, El Dorado County Animal Services joined many other shelters, animal groups and veterinarians across the nation to promote the importance of rabies vaccinations for dogs and cats.

Rabies vaccinations (supplied by the California Veterinary Medical Association) were provided free from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day at the PAWED mobile clinic, which was stationed at the County Government Center parking lot in Placerville for the event.

A total of 97 vaccinations (almost half were cats!) and 17 microchips were provided throughout the day.

A big THANK YOU to the volunteers who staffed the event in two shifts: Local veterinarians, Dr. Mike Russel and Dr. Ric DelGadillo, RVTs and vet assistants from the Consumnes River College tech program, shelter supervisor Alli Lozoya, and PAWED volunteers Jeff Lee, Charlene Welty, Cindy Mayes, Mike Scariot, Carol Mayes, Teri Mizuhara and Lisa VanDyke.
