To go right along with their goals, the Animal Welfare League is offering a Winter Shot Special for only $40. The special for canines includes DHPP or DHLPP, a one-year rabies vaccination and tag and all bio-hazard fees. You don’t need to make an appointment, just show up but you cannot use any other discounts with the special. The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Everyone utilizing this service must check in at least one hour before the clinic closes. This offer is good through the month of January, 2013.
In addition, AWL is offering a general dentistry for only $55 (a savings of $70 or greater). For this service you will have to make an appointment and make certain that your dog is up-to-date on all of its vaccinations. Qualifying canines must be at least five-years-old; other requirements may apply.
