Calcasieu pet owners are invited to two low-cost drive-thru rabies clinics hosted by the Office of Animal Services. Calcasieu Parish and Louisiana State Code requires all dogs and cats over three months old be vaccinated and licensed. The clinics help prevent the spread of Rabies Infection and once vaccinated the pet is required to wear a rabies license tag. Cat owners are encouraged to place the tag on a humane breakaway collar.
The vaccination and licensing fee for spay/neutered animals is $8. Unaltered pets have a $10.00 fee.
Pet owners may pay by cash or check. No credit or debit cards will be accepted.
Clinic dates, time, and locations are:
- March 18, 2017 7am – Noon
West-Cal Arena & Events Center Parking Lot
401 Arena Road, Sulphur, LA 70665
- April 1, 2017 7am – Noon
Burton Coliseum Complex Parking Lot
7001 Gulf Highway, Lake Charles, LA 70607
Reminder: The legal definition of a pet owner is “any person, business or any other legal entity that provides care, harbors, acts as custodian, or permits an animal to remain on or about his premises.” In the event someone is bitten, this person or entity could be held responsible.
