The Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA held a rabies vaccination and microchip day on Sunday afternoon.

Hundreds of dog and cat owners lined up outside of the SPCA to get their pets vaccinated.

Several dogs and cats also got micro chipped by the local vets, making it easier for them to be reunited with their owner if they get lost or run away.

“Microchips are incredibly important to get animals home,” says Kristin Scheller, SPCA Veterinarian. “When animal control officers bring us stray dogs the first thing we do is scan them for a chip.”

The Mosquito Authority also partnered with the SPCA on Sunday, also giving treatments for dogs and cats.
