If you don't have your dog or cat vaccinated for rabies, now is a great time to do it. Positive rabies cases are popping up in several counties across Texas in animals including skunks and raccoons, and to avoid the risk pets should have the shots.

Earlier this year an airdrop program put tiny packets of rabies vaccine on the ground with bait to attract skunks, and although that's expected to help fight the problem it doesn't fix it completely.  

The Humane Society of Angelina County is offering low cost rabies vaccinations again this year, and they've changed the system a bit so there's no standing in line waiting for shots.  This year you can pick up a voucher and take that to a particular Lufkin vet clinic when you're ready.

Vouchers are available through March 26th at the Humane Society at 1102 John Reddit Drive in Lufkin, and you can redeem the vouchers at  West Loop Animal Clinic, 2517 Ted Trout Drive (Hwy 94), anytime during the month of March during business hours.

The dog and cat rabies vaccinations start at 10 bucks, and microchips are also available at a discounted rate.
