EL PASO, Texas – Animal Services, a division of the Environmental Services Department (ESD), is proud to sponsor a low cost microchip, rabies vaccine, and licensing clinic scheduled for this Wednesday, August 5, 2015. The event will be held from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Animal Services Clinic located at 9060 Socorro Road.


Due to the success of recent low cost clinics, Animal Services has decided to hold a weekday event to better serve those residents who were unable to attend previous clinics that were held on Sunday mornings.


The goal of the clinic is to increase licensing by having all municipal pet ownership requirements available at one time. In order to obtain a license, an owner must have the animal microchipped and must also show a current rabies vaccine. For this event only, the shelter will offer all three services (microchip, rabies vaccine and license) for only $24. City code requires that all pets be licensed, vaccinated and microchipped.


The services will be available on a first come, first served basis; the first 150 animals will be served. Exact cash or check only. Please bring friendly dogs on a leash and have cats contained.


Arrive early to avoid extended wait times. It is anticipated that pet owners

will begin to form a line two hours prior to the 6 a.m. start time.


These services support the City of El Paso’s strategic goal to nurture and promote a healthy, sustainable community. For more information, contact the Animal Services Shelter at (915) 842-1000.
