Events

You are required to have a current rabies certificate for all dogs with you when attending a Rhode Island AKC sponsored event. All animals should appear to be in good health and may be subject to examination by a local veterinarian. We have been told that a Certified Veterinary Certificate will not be required for these events.

Vet Clinics

The Providence County Kennel Club encourages everyone to give their pet proper medical care and follow all laws and regulations regarding vaccinations. The following list is provided to assist those who do not have a local veterinarian or who have a financial hardship. Most of these are well health clinics only. Be sure to bring your previous rabies certificate to the clinic if you have one.

If you can show financial hardship, you can get help for your pet through the Pets In Need Veterinary Clinic at very low cost. They are located at 40 Amaral St, Riverside, RI 02915. Also, you can obtain a low cost spay or neuter through the Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association.

To find Rabies Clinics run by the Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association, see the RIVMA web site. They are held in the spring and the dates for 2020 are posted on the RIVMA site. The cost varies between $10 and $12 for the rabies vaccination and payment must be made in cash. You do not need to be a resident of the town in which the clinic is being held in order to attend.

The Rhode Island SPCA runs an Almost-Free Rabies Clinic each year in the fall at their Riverside location. The date for 2019 is past. See the RISPCA web site for details. The “cost” of the vaccine is 5 cans or boxes of unexpired non-perishable food that will be donated to a local food bank.

Vetco provides affordable pet vaccinations at Petco locations in Providence, Cranston, Warwick, North Kingstown and Middletown. For locations and dates and times see the Vetco clinics web site. Their price for vaccinations is found on the Vetco web site.

SHOTVet is now holding clinics at local PetValu stores. To find the closest location and date, visit their find-a-clinic site.

VIP Petcare runs affordable pet vaccine clinics in conjunction with local Tractor Supply and pet stores. These clinics provide $19 rabies vaccinations and $19 microchip id with free lifetime registration through Found Animals Foundation. They also provide other vaccinations and tests. To see the full list of their services and to find a clinic near you, see the VIP Petcare web site. They often have coupons on their promo page to make the cost even lower.
