VISALIA – Tulare County’s dog-owning community is in for a treat, because the county’s animal services is organizing a drive-up vaccination clinic at its facility in Visalia to ensure the health and safety of your loyal canine companions.

On Thursday, Nov. 9, the drive-up vaccination clinic services will be offered from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Tulare County Animal Services, located at 14131 Ave. 256. There, clinic providers will distribute rabies and parvo/distemper vaccines free-of-charge. The drive-up line will stop accepting new vehicles at 11:30 a.m.

The Tulare County Animal Services has emphasized that pre-registration for the drive-up services are required prior to attending the drive-up. When completing the registration, residents are asked to register one “appointment” per pet on the online portal at www.tcanimalservices.org.

The time slots on the online portal are not appointment times, only pre-registration slots. During the drive-up itself, vehicles will be taken on a first come, first-serve basis. 

The animal services also emphasized the reminder to interested residents that the vaccination clinic set for Nov. 9 is only for dogs, and will only include rabies and parvo/distemper vaccinations.

Once a person has registered their pet, they will receive further instructions as well as a link to the animal services’ Vaccine Consent form via email. If you have any questions, please call the Tulare County Animal Services at 559-636-4050.
