How The Great Falls Animal Shelter Is Helping Pets

For most of us, this day will fly right by without a notice.  But for our furbabies and the parents that take care of them, it is a big day.  But this day is much more about awareness than it is a celebration of anything.

This year, World Rabies Day comes on September 28th.  With that, our local shelter will be helping those same furbabies stay safe from unwanted complications due to playing with something they shouldn't.

If You Need Help, Simply Load Up Your Pet for the Shelter

No, I don't mean to drop them off.

The Great Falls Animal Shelter will be hosting a rabies vaccination clinic as part of the Rabies Awareness Day.

Pet owners will be able to stop by the shelter for a free inoculation of rabies for their pet.  The great part of this is that it is free.
