GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas – The Galveston County Animal Resource Center (ARC) is happy to host two low-cost pet
vaccination clinics on Thursday, Aug. 12 and Friday, Aug. 13. Both clinics are open to residents of any city and will include
pet microchipping and county registration. Please note, clients will be seen on a first come, first served basis. Clients will
be placed on a waiting list and called into the building when it is their turn. Appointments are no longer required.
Low-Cost Vet Vaccinations
Low-cost vaccinations, flea control and heartworm testing and treatment services through ARC range from $15
for a rabies vaccine for both dogs and cats to $60 for the dog package and $45 for the cat package. Specific pricing is
online at www.gchd.org/arc.
Microchips and Registration
Microchips are available for all cats and dogs, regardless of jurisdiction, for just $20 each. County regulation requires pet
owners who live in the municipalities served by the ARC (Bayou Vista, Hitchcock, Kemah, La Marque, Texas City, Tiki
Island and unincorporated Galveston County) to register their pets. There is no registration fee for pets that are already
microchipped. Registration for pets that are not microchipped is $20 and includes a microchip. The fee is $15 for pet
owners age 65 and older.
