Thank you for your interest in participating in our low-cost pet clinics! We look forward to meeting you and your pets at our upcoming events!
We appreciate your understanding that in order to keep our costs and your costs to a minimum, we can only accept CASH for all services and products provided by the SCVVC. We're sorry, but no exceptions can be made.
For your convenience, licensing is provided at our clinics by the appropriate animal services department and can be paid by cash, check, and sometimes by credit/debit card. Proof of ID is required for licensing.
As a non-profit organization, we appreciate your donations which help us continue providing our services to the public. 100% of all donations are used to provide vaccinations and other important health care services to pets whose owners cannot afford to obtain those services for their pets. Please visit our "ABOUT US" page to learn more about our mission!
All clinics are held on a first-come, first-served, basis. EXCEPTIONS: Elderly or disabled persons, elderly pets, and all cats will be given the opportunity to be seen first.
Pet owners or caretakers of pets must be 18 years of age or older to participate. You do not need to be a resident of the city in which the vaccine clinic is being held; however, proper identification such as a driver's license is required for licensing. For your protection and for your pet's protection, proper identificaion may also be required for microchipping.
All dogs must be on leashes with proper collars or harnesses. Dog collars must be snug, but not tight. A dog is easily able to pull out of its collar and escape if the collar is too loose.
All cats must be in secure carriers. Cat harnesses with leashes can also be used WITH the carriers.
All pets must be controlled by owners at all times. If a dog is aggressive towards other animals or people, it must be properly and securely muzzled by its owner or placed in a cage until vaccinated. If a dog bites a person or another animal, it must be reported immediately to an animal control officer or to the attending veterinarian.
Only healthy, non-pregnant animals can be vaccinated. For the health, safety, and welfare of your pet, please LET ONE OF THE SCVVC STAFF KNOW IMMEDIATELY UPON YOUR ARRIVAL IF YOU THINK YOUR PET MAY BE PREGNANT OR IF IT HAS BEEN SICK OR HAS SHOWN ANY SYMPTOMS OF ILLNESS OR IRREGULAR BEHAVIOR DURING THE PAST WEEK PRIOR TO THE CLINIC.
PLEASE BRING THE FOLLOWING RECORDS TO THE VACCINE CLINIC IF POSSIBLE:
Spay / Neuter Certificate
Rabies Certificate or License Renewal Notice (from the Department of Animal Services)
Prior Vaccination Records
These documents will be extremely helpful in assisting our staff in determing which vaccinations will be appropriate for your pet and will also help move you through the line quicker!
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE CAN NOT PROVIDE YOU WITH A 3-YEAR RABIES VACCINATION CERTIFICATE WITHOUT PROOF OF YOUR PET HAVING A PRIOR RABIES VACCINE. A RABIES CERTIFICATE OR A LICENSE RENEWAL LETTER FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF ANIMAL SERVICES WHICH CONTAINS THE RABIES EXPIRATION DATE WILL SERVE AS VALID PROOF.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: INFORM ONE OF OUR LINE ATTENDANTS OR ANOTHER SCVVC STAFF MEMBER IMMEDIATELY UPON YOUR ARRIVAL IF YOUR PET HAS EVER HAD AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO A VACCINE.
If your pet has ever had ANY type of vaccine reaction in the past, it is best to take it to your regular veterinarian to receive vaccines, as it will require pre-vaccine medication and possibly post-vaccine medication, as well as observation and monitoring after receiving its vaccinations. If you are unable to bring your pet to another veterinarian for vaccines and choose to attend our clinic, again, PLEASE INFORM ONE OF OUR STAFF UPON YOUR ARRIVAL AT OUR CLINIC THAT YOUR PET HAS EXPERIENCED VACCINE REACTIONS IN THE PAST AND INFORM THE DOCTOR WHEN YOU FIRST SEE HIM/HER!
Pet owners should use common sense to ensure their pets are protected from extreme weather conditions. In warm weather, pet owners should bring a bowl and water for their pets. Do NOT leave your pets inside your vehicle while you are standing in line! Pets can over-heat and dehydrate just as people can. In cold weather, pet owners, especially those of young puppies, young kittens, small-size pets, or those with little or thin fur/hair, should make sure that their pets are kept warm through the use of a blanket or by other means.
Pet owners are responsible to clean up after their pets (out of courtesy to others and by law)! We do not furnish supplies for cleaning up pet feces, so please bring your own plastic bags to take care of any messes made by your pet!
Usually there is a waiting line, so arriving early to the event is recommended. You must be in line prior to the closing time of the event to be eligible to participate.
If you cannot provide written documentation showing proof of prior Rabies vaccination by a licensed United States veterinarian or proof of prior California licensing, the Rabies vaccination will be good for one (1) year. With valid proof and if your pet is over one (1) year of age, the Rabies vaccination is good for three (3) years.
All participating pet owners agree to hold the Southern California Veterinary Vaccine Clinic, it's employees, volunteers, independent contractors, associates, affiliates, representatives, agents, governmental agencies and entities, free and harmless from any and all injuries sustained and/or loss incurred by pet owners or pets during, prior to, or after the operation of these clinics.
The Southern California Veterinary Vaccine Clinic ("SCVVC") reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who does not comply with the requirements as stated above, and/or who conducts him/herself in a manner which is dangerous, distasteful, or discourteous to others.
It is MANDATORY that all dogs in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, and all dogs in the City of Riverside and County of Riverside be Microchipped!!! EXCEPTION: (Microchips are not required for licensed dogs over the age of 10 years old residing in the "City" of Riverside. If you have any questions, please contact the Riverside Animal Shelter). It is also mandatory that all dogs residing within the Los Angeles City limits which are not spayed or neutered be microchipped! (We suggest that you contact your local animal shelter or department of animal services if you have any questions concerning microchipping or licensing requirements).
Microchipping is done with a hypodermic needle, injected easily and quickly under the skin and can be done at the same time that your pet receives it's vaccines. There is no age or size requirement for microchipping. (Please go to the tab entitled "Microchips" on this website for detailed information about microchipping).
Cats must be at least 4 months old to receive a Rabies vaccine. Although licensing for cats is not yet required in all areas of California, it is strongly recommended for the safety and protection of your pets and families that your cat be vaccinated against Rabies, even if it is an indoor cat! Rabies can be carried by bats and other wildlife which can easily get inside your home or garage through vents, fireplaces, attics, windows, doors, etc. The City of Long Beach has passed an ordinance which requires all cats to be vaccinated against Rabies, all cats to be licensed, and all cats to either wear license tags on collars or to be microchipped. Cat owners may receive special discounts in some areas if they are microchipped. Please contact the city in which you reside to obtain current and detailed information concerning city ordinances pertaining to cats.
If you are unsure about local ordinances concerning licensing, microchipping, or other animal-related ordinances, please contact the public animal shelter in your area and/or your city hall. Although cat licensing and microchipping may not currently be required in your area, it may be required in the very near future.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide duplicate Vaccination Certificates. As such, please maintain the original Certificate provided to you at the time of our clinic in a safe place. If you need to submit the Certificate of Vaccination to the city or county for licensing, make a copy for your records prior to submission.
If you have any questions concerning our vaccine clinics, please click the "Contact Us" tab located at the top of the page, and we will respond to your email as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours.
