The city’s annual “Vaccine-A-Thons” for dogs and cats will be a drive-thru event this year with pet owners required to wear face masks. They will take place Wednesday, July 15 and Wednesday, Aug. 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. on both days at Paramount Park, 14410 Paramount Blvd.

On site pet licensing will not be available this year.

Rabies vaccinations (required for all dogs under California law) will be priced at $7 each (plus a $2 medical waste disposal fee). This is a $10-$15 savings over traditional prices.

A complete selection of other pet vaccinations will be available at discounted prices, with special combination “packs” to allow pet owners even greater savings when they purchase multiple vaccinations.

You can get general health exams and services at discounted prices. (A list of these services and their costs can be found online at or on flyers available at City Hall.)

Flea control products Trifexis, Bravecto, and NexGard may be purchased at special prices.

You can have a microchip registration done for identification purposes (if your pet is ever lost) for $30 and nail trimming for $15.

Checks, cash, and credit cards will be accepted for the veterinarian services.

Please remember – dogs must be on leashes and cats must be in carriers.

All services are provided by licensed veterinarians from Vet Care Vaccination Services, Inc. For more information, call 562-220-2018.
