North Beach PAWS First Low-Cost Vaccination Clinic of 2024 Set for May 19 in Rochester

North Beach PAWS’ first low-cost vaccination clinic of 2024 is scheduled for Sunday, May 19, from 1 – 4 p.m. at The Feed Bin located at 7505 183rd Ave SW, Unit A, in Rochester. Vaccinations and microchips are $20 each. The core vaccines include rabies, DAPP, and Bordetella for dogs, and rabies, FVRCP, and flea treatment for cats. North Beach PAWS, a private, all-volunteer, no-kill animal shelter headquartered in Hoquiam, held two such clinics in 2023, one at Grays Harbor College in Aberdeen and the other at the Ocean Shores Lions Club in Oceans Shores, where more than 300 animals received vaccinations and/or microchips.


The owner of Rochester’s Scatter Creek Animal Clinic, Dr. Erin Ruminski, along with Dr. John Stevenson, North Beach PAWS board member Dr. Stacy Steele, and numerous volunteers, including veterinary technicians, will coordinate and administer vaccinations and microchips for dogs and cats.


Washington State law requires all dogs and cats to be vaccinated against rabies. Other diseases such as distemper are prevalent in wildlife and can infect unvaccinated pets. Thanks to vaccinations, numerous common diseases are entirely preventable. A microchip is the only permanent identification that can reunite you with your beloved lost pet. Unlike collars and ID tags that can break or get lost, a microchip will last for the life of your pet.
