County residents will be able to get rabies vaccinations for their pets for a reduced fee Oct. 20.
Loretta Shipman of Columbus County Animal Control said shots will be good for one year, and the cost will be $5 during the event.
“This is a good, inexpensive way to protect your pet and your family,” she said. “Rabies vaccinations are required by state law.”
In addition to the Animal Shelter, petowners may get the $5 shots at Southern Veterinary Hospital and the Animal Hospital in Whiteville, and Animal Hospital of South Columbus near Tabor City.
