  • The First State Animal Center-SPCA will hold vaccination clinics from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25, Sept. 15 and Sept. 29.
    Cats or dogs must be at least eight weeks old to receive the vaccinations, said FSAC spokeswoman Lisa Chase, and at least 16 weeks old to be vaccinated for rabies.
    Rabies, distemper and bordetella vaccines also will be offered and are $15 each; microchipping also will be available at a cost of $25.
    Individuals wanting to take advantage of these vaccinations should being their animal’s prior vaccination history to receive a three-year rabies vaccine, Chase said.
    The clinic will be held in the large tan warehouse next door to the FSAC-SPCA, located on Cochran Drive, Camden.
    The center also will offer flea and tick treatments for cats and dogs; treatment for a cat will cost $43, with prices for dog ranging between $47 and $51, depending on the size of the animal.
    All dogs must be on a leash and all cats must be in a carrier, Chase said, and aggressive dogs will be required to stay in their owner’s vehicle but may have to wait to be vaccinated.
    Individuals and families are responsible for their pets and should bring water, waste bags and a muzzle if needed.
    Cash, checks and Visa/MC are accepted for payment. Parking is in the fenced lot beside or in front of the tan building, with no parking allowed on the street.
    All vaccinations are done on a first-come, first-served basis, Chase said.
