Monthly Pet Vaccine Clinic Set for Saturday

Get your pets vaccinated, licensed and/or microchipped!

The City of Bakersfield Animal Control Unit will be offering its monthly low-cost vaccine clinic on Saturday, February 8 at Jefferson Park (801 Bernard Street) from 9 a.m. to noon.

At each clinic, City residents can have their pets vaccinated, licensed and microchipped. Spay and neuter vouchers from the City of Bakersfield and volunteers will be on hand to discuss spay/neuter options.

The clinics are held on the second Saturday of each month, from 9 a.m. to noon. The full 2020 schedule (subject to change) is listed in the PDF linked below, as well as on the City Animal Care Center's website and the Bakersfield Police Department's Animal Control page.

The City's first clinic of 2020, held at the Park at Riverwalk on January 11, was very successful with more than 360 pets were vaccinated, and 90 were microchipped. The microchips help identify the animal so they can be returned to the rightful owner.

Low-cost vaccination options are also available through our community partners now more than ever before. We will provide lists of all participating partners available at the clinics, as well as below.

The City wants to make having your pet vaccinated, licensed and microchipped as convenient as possible to make sure all your furry friends stay happy and healthy.
