Speaking of Vaccinations…Low-Cost Pet Vaccine Clinic. No Appointment Required!
A great opportunity to keep your pet healthy by vaccinating.
BERKELEY, Calif. – March 11, 2021. The pandemic has made it very difficult to make a routine appointment with your pet’s veterinarian. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the country veterinarians were required to adopt new safety measures affecting how they care for sick and healthy pets, and that has contributed to delays and long waits for appointments.
Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society’s Low-Cost Vaccine Clinic will provide pet owners/guardians access to affordable core vaccinations on Saturday, March 27th at 9:00 AM – no appointment necessary.
Berkley Humane is proud to offer this important service for pet guardians in the Bay Area and the Low-Cost Vaccine Clinic will be part of the already successful Spay the Bay program which has been providing affordable spay and neuter services for over four years.
“Dog and cats need annual vaccinations in order to stay healthy” notes Jeffrey Zerwekh, Executive Director at the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society. “Keeping up-to-date on vaccinations is one of the best things you can do to keep your pets healthy.”
A variety of vaccinations will be offered for dogs and cats which will include rabies, Bordetella, Leptospirosis, Panleukopenia, and other core vaccines and heart worm treatments. All vaccinations are $15-20, and includes a FREE microchip.
The clinic will operate on a first-come, first-served model for the first 30 pets. Pet owners are advised to arrive early to ensure space for their animal. The Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society veterinary team will
assist pet guardians in selecting the right vaccinations given the animal’s age and lifestyle.

About Spay the Bay
Spay the Bay, founded in 2016 by Berkeley Humane, offers low-cost spay and neuter services and vaccination clinics for dogs and cats in order to reduce animal overpopulation in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are dedicated to providing spay and neuter services at the lowest cost possible
so that pet guardians can access critical services and resources regardless of their financial abilities. We believe that when spay and neuter services are made accessible, pet guardians are more likely to spay and neuter their pets, which prevents the birth of unplanned litters and alleviates overcrowding in local shelters. In addition to providing low-cost spay and neuter services, Spay the Bay also provides the public with a centralized list of low-cost options in the Bay Area, making it easy for pet guardians in the
local community to locate critical resources. Berkeley Humane and its programs and services, including Spay the Bay, are largely sustained by grants and contributions from the general public.
