2020 Free Rabies Clinic Canceled

Dear Community Members,

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are sorry to inform you that the Humane Society of St. Joseph County’s 2020 Free Rabies Vaccination Clinic has been canceled. While we are still as dedicated as ever to assisting our community and enhancing the human/animal bond through the compassionate care of animals, the safety of our attendees and volunteers has to come first. 

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We are looking forward to providing this service in the future, once it is safe to do so.

Until then, we recommend contacting your primary veterinary clinic or any of our community veterinary offices to inquire if they are taking new patients and to schedule a vaccination appointment. A list of veterinary clinics can be found below or can be picked up at the shelter.

We have been informed that ABC Clinic in South Bend is hosting a low-cost vaccination clinic on September 12, 2020. Details can be found on their website: http://petrefugeabcclinic.com/

Please remember to be kind and patient as our local veterinary clinics are also dealing with abnormal circumstances and an increase in clients to care for.

Thank you for your understanding and compassion during these difficult times. If you have any questions, please contact us at (574) 255-4726 ext 0.

We look forward to continuing our mission and hope to provide free rabies vaccinations in the future. In the meantime, please stay safe and remember, we are in this together.
