Why does Shelby Humane offer low cost vaccines and micro-chipping?
Disease is a product of the community. It is not a shelter, rescue or other type of animal welfare problem but a community problem. By offering low cost vaccines to the public we hope to assist in creating a more healthy community for all companion pets. This has certainly had a positive impact on the health of animals brought in to our facility.
In regards to micro-chipping, it's simple, we want to reunite pets with their families.
We encourage all pet owners to visit their primary vet for all pet needs, however, we are aware that some owners do not have a primary vet. We strive to promote responsible pet ownership which includes services that will proctect the people and pets of our community. Rabies is required by state law and rabies is a true risk in our community, protect yourselves and your pets. It has been reported this year that many vets are seeing an increase in the number of parvo cases they are seeing. Please protect your pet from this horrible, extremely expensive to treat, often life ending virus. Annual vaccines are critical to the health of your pet.
