FOX8 is teaming up with the Guilford County Animal Shelter for the Spot Mobile Spay and Wellness clinic and The Guilford County Department of Public Health Coalition to host the annual rabies vaccination clinic at the FOX8 studios.

The Spot Mobile Spay and Wellness event will be held on Monday, April 15 through Wednesday, April 17. Sign up for the clinic will begin April 8. To sign up, please call 336-279-0563 or you can visit for more details.

The rabies clinic is Thursday, April 18 from 3:30pm until 6:30pm and Friday April 19 from 1:30pm until 5:30pm at 2005 Francis Street in High Point. Each vaccine will cost $5.00 and is good for one year. Sign ups are not necessary for this event.

“Updated rabies vaccinations in our pet population are our best defense in preventing the spread of the deadly rabies virus to the human population”, said Merle Green, Guilford County Health Director. “I am encouraging residents to take advantage of this opportunity to protect and safeguard their pets and families.”

North Carolina law requires all dogs and cats that are four months of age or older to be vaccinated against rabies. All dogs are required to be on a leash and cats must be in carriers for the rabies clinic.

The FOX8 Rabies Clinics have been very successful. Our goal is to educate the public on the importance of Spay and Neuter while people are here to vaccinate against rabies.
