TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Is your dog or cat vaccinated for rabies? In Florida, it’s a requirement—and it’s not necessarily cheap.
Thankfully, Hillsborough County is giving residents who are pet owners a break, letting them get their pets vaccinated and microchipped for free on Sunday.
The county is offering free rabies vaccinations and microchips for dogs and cats during a drive-thru event at the Larry Sanders Sports Complex from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, or until supplies run out.
The event is drive-thru only, meaning pet owners won’t have to leave their vehicles.
Vaccines and microchips are limited to dogs and cats 3 months or older.

The county said hundreds of pet owners were expected to take advantage of the service.
