This vaccination day comes after the first outbreak of infected animals in May, a growing number of infected animals and world rabies day on Friday, according to a new release from the Larimer Humane Society.

Cats and dogs can be brought to one of the satellite locations for a free rabies vaccination. Veterinarians’ on-site will do a health check and administer vaccines. If you prefer to see their veterinarian, it is encouraged to do so.

Participating clinics will provide varying promotions, which may include free or reduced cost exams and vaccines and reduced cost testing for other diseases.

Participating locations can be found here.
