The Animal Welfare League of Scioto County has completed its 25th year
providing reduced rate pet vaccinations to area residents. The number of
locations has varied since 1987. With anywhere from four to five locations
in the past, the League has since seen a need to add a sixth. As of last year,
Nile Township Fire Station joined other fire stations at Minford, Porter
Township, Valley Township, Washington Township and Sierra’s Haven.
Pictured is Dr. Jill Salisbury vaccinating a participant at the Nile Township
Fire Station. Clinics are offered the first Saturday of May and the first
Saturday of June; usually three locations per event. Scioto County
Veterinarians generously donate their time and expertise at these
locations. The numbers of participants increase every year. The six
locations this year vaccinated or heartworm tested 385 dogs and 37 cats.
Pet vaccination clinics are not based on income but available to all. More
information on this and other Animal Welfare League programs can be
obtained by calling (740)858-2446.
