From the City of Cambridge, March 26: The Cambridge Animal Commission is sponsoring a rabies vaccination clinic for dogs from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday in the Public Works lot, 147 Hampshire St., near Inman Square. The cost is $15 per dog. Rabies vaccinations are required by state law.

A microchip clinic, sponsored by All Dog Rescue, will also be available at the clinic at $20 per dog.

Please note that also per state law, every dog over the age of 6 months is required to have a current dog license, and licenses running through March 31, 2016, will be available at the clinic. Pet owners are also welcome to stop by to pick up a license if their dog is up to date on its rabies vaccination. The cost is for $8 for spayed or neutered dogs or $25 for non-spayed and non-neutered dogs.

If your cat needs to be vaccinated, there are clinics in the area that administer low-cost programs for rabies vaccinations. For information, call the Cambridge Animal Commission at 617-349-4376.
