The Lafayette Animal Shelter and Care Center (LASCC) and SpayNation are offering free rabies vaccinations for dogs next week in Lafayette.

The drive-thru event will be held Saturday, October 31, from 8 a.m. until noon in the parking lot of the Cajundome. Those interested are asked to remain in their vehicles and wear masks while interacting with event staff.

Saturday's event will also feature:

  • $20 Microchips (cash only) - Microchips register pets for a lifetime to their owner and are vital in identifying and contacting owners of lost pets.
  • $20 Spay/Neuter Vouchers (limited quantity) - A limited supply of vouchers will be available for pets vaccinated at the clinic which are not yet spayed/neutered. (Spay/neuter surgeries need to be scheduled with SpayNation and will not be conducted on this day.)

Additional information for the October 31 Drive-Thru Rabies Clinic:

  • Enter the CAJUNDOME parking lot at Gate 8 from West Congress Street (across from the Hilton Garden Inn) and follow the directions to the overhang where the rabies vaccinations will be administered. DO NOT enter at Cajun Field.
  • Patience and courtesy to other drivers is appreciated. A capacity turnout is anticipated and a short wait should be expected. Attendees should allow time to wait in line and ensure passengers and pets are comfortable.
  • The October Drive-Thru Rabies Clinic is for DOGS ONLY. SpayNation will conduct a Separate Rabies Clinic for Cats on November 13, 2020 from 8 a.m. until noon at 1640 N. Bertrand Drive. Cats must be in a carrier.

All animals in Lafayette Parish over the age of four months must be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian and registered yearly. There are fines associated with failure to vaccinate pets against rabies. Pet owners are instructed to consult their veterinarians regarding other vaccinations pets should be given.
