SCAVMA World Rabies Day Clinic and St. Francis Fest

Posted September 21, 2011

The Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA) at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVM) is organizing a low cost vaccination clinic on Oct. 1, 2011 in honor of World Rabies Day. The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at Saint Francis Church located at 1101 Rock Prairie Road.

This event takes place every year and is held in conjunction with Saint Francis Fest at the Saint Francis Episcopal Church. Vaccinations are given out on a first come, first served basis. The cost is $10 and will include a free health examination performed by your very own future Aggie veterinarians under the supervision of a faculty clinician.

World Rabies Day is a global effort to raise awareness in support of animal and human rabies prevention. This day was set aside to educate people around the globe about the impact of rabies, how it can be prevented, and how to eliminate the sources that contribute to the death of 55,000 humans from rabies worldwide.

The student AVMA chapter at Texas A&M currently has 100 percent student membership. The SCAVMA's goals for this event are twofold: First, SCAVMA would like to vaccinate up to 300 dogs or cats in Bryan/College Station for rabies to protect both the animals and the people of the community. Second, the students aim to educate the public about basic animal health topics such as vaccination protocols, heartworm disease, and the advantages of spaying or neutering your pet.

Come out to keep your pet healthy and participate in the many other pet and family friendly activities at Saint Francis Fest!
