Page Background


Each year Anne Arundel County has numerous cases involving rabid animals and thousands of lost pets come through our shelter each year.  To help protect Anne Arundel County pets and people from the deadly rabies virus and to promote the reuniting of lost pets with their families, Animal Control holds weekly low cost rabies and microchip clinics. Keep your pet continuously vaccinated against rabies, microchip your pets and keep your licensed. In Anne Arundel County dogs and cats are required BY LAW to be vaccinated against rabies and licensed with the County. 

How to

Low cost rabies vaccinations and microchip implantations are available every Thursday (except holidays) for a period of 3 hours at Anne Arundel County Animal Control. Times are dependent on the season and we do have some clinics with special hours.  The veterinarian leaves promptly at the end time for the clinic. Depending on the length of the line, Animal Control may conclude the line at an appropriate time to ensure all individuals remaining in line receive the services.  

Please note clinics are weather permitting and may be canceled for high temperatures, low temperatures, precipitation, air quality or any other factors that may increase risks to citizens or animals at the outdoor clinic. 

Dogs must be on leashes and cats must be in carriers.

See below for clinic times and exceptions to normal times.
