This past Saturday was the Anderson Humane Society’s annual rabies clinic where over 400 people and many more pets were out at the county park to receive discounted rabies vaccines and more.  The annual clinic, which is sponsored by the Anderson County Health Department, brought together Dr Goodpaster from the Animal Clinic and Drs McClure and Phillips from the Anderson Animal Hospital along with a number of techs to administer the $5 shots.

According to the humane society president, Karen Tucker, the clinic’s normal wait times have been considerably reduced due to the state certifying a three year Rabies vaccine so less people have to attend each year.  They have in the past had over 700 people attend.  However, people can still return every year for the parvo and distemper shots.

Also present were an army of humane society volunteers to fill out the paperwork and issue county dog licenses. Amy Lewitt from Ruff Country Retreat was also there, giving $5 nail trims.  According to Karen, 65 people had their pets’ nails trimmed and all proceeds from the trimmings went to the humane society as a donation.
