VACCINE AND MICROCHIP CLINIC 

Every fall, we hold an annual low-cost rabies and microchip clinic. Our 2022 clinic was Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Tioga County Fairgrounds. It was very successful with more than 50 microchips that were registered and many more rabies vaccines administered. Vaccines were performed by Dr. Kristine Shaw, DVM, of Grand Canyon Veterinary Clinic.

No appointments are needed for the clinic. Rabies shots for dogs or cats are $10, distemper combo shots are $15 and microchips are $15. Owners can register the chip themselves, or for an additional $5, Second Chance will register it. Cash or check only; no debit or credit cards accepted. One-year rabies shots will be offered unless proof of previous shot is provided. Dogs are required to be on leases and cats in carriers. Please bring water for your pet during your wait. 

Check back next fall for info on our 2023 clinic. For questions or more information, contact us at 570-376-3646.

 



PET PHOTOS WITH SANTA

Bring you dog, cat, lizard, hermit crab, goat, horse, chicken (yes, we've had all of these!) or your children/grandchildren and pose for a photo with our very own Santa Claus. You will receive a 4x6 cardstock framed photo for $5 or an 8x10 cardstock framed photo for $10. 

This is one of our favorite events of the year, so if you don’t have a pet, simply come watch or volunteer to help! In 2021, we hosted three different dates in locations around Tioga County - Wellsboro, Mansfield and Tioga.
