Canna Provisions, Berkshire Humane Team Up for Rabies Clinic

Print Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. &mdash With a grant from Canna Provisions, Berkshire Humane Society is offering free rabies vaccines for cats on Tuesday, May 24 from 4:30 to 6 pm and for dogs on Wednesday, May 25 from 5 to 7 pm at the main shelter, 214 Barker Road.
On each day, microchips will be available at a discounted price of $10 each to celebrate National Chip Your Pet month. 
Pittsfield residents with any current rabies certificate may also license their dogs on Wednesday: $10 for spayed or neutered dogs and $20 for intact dogs. All items are available during clinic hours on a first-come, first-served basis until supplies last.
For both days pet owners should bring the most recent rabies certificate for their animal, even if the certificate has expired. Cats should be in carriers and dogs should be on 6-foot, non-retractable leashes. Cat owners should use the main entrance on Tuesday. Dog owners on Wednesday should park in the lower parking lot and enter through the Family Dog School door.
To expedite microchip processing, download a microchip form from and fill it out before visiting the shelter.
Earlier this year, Canna Provisions presented Berkshire Humane Society with a check for $10,000, with the intent that half of it would be used towards community projects to help Berkshire county residents in need care for their pets.
"We thank Canna Provisions for helping us help financially strapped pet owners keep their pets in their homes," said John Perreault, Executive Director of Berkshire Humane Society. "Not only does this grant reduce costs of pet ownership for hundreds of people, it promotes healthy, rabies-free pet populations."
