Vaccinations & Microchips

Rabies & Microchips

The Placer SPCA recommends having your dog or cat microchipped, even if they typically remain indoors. If you move, go on vacation, or experience other times of unusual activity in your home, your pet may be more likely to run outside and become disoriented. When your pet has a microchip, an animal shelter or veterinary clinic can obtain your contact information by scanning the chip and requesting the information from the manufacturer.

Low-cost rabies and microchip clinics are available weekly by species at the Placer SPCA Intake Center. The Placer SPCA will provide these services while maintaining social distancing standards. A staff member will meet you outside and take your animal inside to administer services. Once the services are completed, the staff member will bring your pet(s) back outside to you. During the clinics, rabies vaccines are $10 and microchips are $15.

Please note: It is important to keep your contact information up to date with your microchip’s manufacturer. The Placer SPCA can scan your pet for free to determine if they already have a microchip.

You and your pet will be required to wait in your vehicle so please ensure you have the ability to provide appropriate climate control as needed (air conditioning in the summer or heat in the winter). Clinics are subject to cancellation.
