Spring is here and along with it comes an increased risk for potentially deadly canine diseases like parvo and rabies. To help keep your pets healthy this year, Denver Animal Shelter (DAS) is offering free parvo vaccinations for dogs under a year throughout the month of May, and adding a second day to their weekly reduced-cost vaccination clinics beginning May 3.

Pet owners should make sure their animals’ rabies vaccinations are up to date because more skunks are testing positive for rabies, according to the Tri-County Health Department and Colorado Department of Agriculture. Three rabid skunks have been found in Adams, Arapahoe and Elbert counties in the past week, the Tri-County Health Department says. So far, six rabid skunks have been identified in these counties this year. Rabid skunks were also reported earlier this month in Boulder and Weld Counties, marking an increase in rabies in Colorado among animals that travel predominantly on the ground, according to Boulder County health officials. The closer proximity of these rabies cases to Denver means Denver citizens may need to be on the lookout.

Rabies is a very serious disease that affects the central nervous system, has no cure and is almost always fatal. However, rabies is easily preventable with vaccinations. All Denver pet owners are required by law to vaccinate dogs & cats for rabies. Every Saturday (and Sundays starting in May) from 10 A.M.-1 P.M., Denver Animal Shelter offers a reduced cost vaccination clinic for public animals. Our clinic is first-come, first-served and includes vaccinations for rabies and distemer/parvo as well as a 1-year Denver pet license all for $35.
