Rifle Animal Shelter, Rifle Police, Garfield County Sheriff’s Office host pet vaccination clinic

On June 8, the Rifle Animal Shelter, in cooperation with the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office and the Rifle Police Department, hosted a vaccination clinic. People were encouraged to bring their dogs or cats into the shelter and have them vaccinated for $5 per shot.

The goal was to make animal vaccinations available to the general public in a convenient location at a nominal fee so that the dogs and cats in our neighborhoods could be healthier and safer. This year a new record was reached as 277 shots were administered to dogs and cats of all sizes and breeds.
