Pet owners from around Charlottesville signed up for the rabies and microchip clinic held by the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.

The SPCA holds the clinic four times a year and members say it’s important for animals to get the chip, so animals who wander off can be reunited with their owners.

“So every time an animal comes into the shelter, the first thing we do is scan them for a micro-chip,” says Kristen Scheller, veterinarian at the SPCA. “So it really helps us locate owners, so we really encourage it.”

“The rabies vaccine is a required vaccine by law; it's important for public health and for the animal's health.”
