Free Rabies Vaccine and City Registration Clinic
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 • Posted December 5, 2012

Just as rabies was a serious disease in the frontier days, it continues to be a problem in Texas today. This disease took the life of Arlis’s beloved ‘Ole Yeller’ in a dramatic, heartbreaking conclusion. The state of Texas requires that dogs and cats be vaccinated against rabies by 4 months of age and on a 1-year or 3-year basis thereafter depending on the vaccine used. In order to help control this devastating disease in these economically difficult times, Ole’ Yellow Animal Rescue is providing a free of charge rabies vaccine clinic this Saturday, December 8 from 9 am to 5 pm at the Community Building here in Mason while supplies last. The cost of the required city registration will also be waived on this special day providing your pet with its required city tag. The City of Mason regulates that all domestic animals within the city limits be registered and wear their city tag in order to assist Animal Control Officers in the event your pet is lost.

This free rabies and city tag clinic will be set up on the golf course side of our local Community Building. All animals must be on a leash or in a pet carrier. We plan to have three stations set up, one for each Veterinary Group. Fritz Landers, DVM

Also, in cooperation with the clinic, Santa is coming to town to meet you and your dog-gone good canine or purr-fect feline! Why not say “Happy Holidays” while helping the animals of the Mason with a photo of Santa and your cherished pet! Arts and Crafts booths will be on hand for your browsing pleasure inside the Community Building. Rummage through the garage sale booths of generously donated items. Enjoy a warm or cool beverage and refreshments.

Booth rentals to sell your treasures are still available for $25 a space. Please contact Karen at 347-2387, or Ashley at 347-7277 to reserve a spot today to take the hassle out of setting up your own yard sale by joining us and helping the animals of Mason.

We thank these doctors and the City of Mason for helping make this endeavor possible.
