As a D.C. area cat sitter, people sometimes ask me where they can access low-cost vaccinations for their cats or dogs. The Humane Rescue Alliance has the most low-cost and frequent clinics. DC’s free clinic which is held annually in each ward won’t be happening until later this fall.
HUMANE RESCUE ALLIANCE
HRA is hosting a weekly vaccine clinic on Wednesdays (3 to 6:50), Thursdays(3 to 6:50), and Saturdays (9:30 to 1:20) by appointment only. You register on-line by going to https://www.humanerescuealliance.org/vaccination-clinic#schedule%20an%20online%20app
Appointments are available three weeks in advance. If it says no slots available, keep checking since appointment times are added weekly. Only three pets per family. Dogs need to be leashed and cats in their carriers.
Credit cards, debit cards, and exact change if a cash payment. No checks or Care Credit.

CITY OF DC HEALTH DEPARTMENT
Annually, a vaccine clinic has been scheduled on a Saturday in each of the Wards. Currently, no clinic has been scheduled for 2022. It looks like it will be sometime in the fall. Remember, dogs need to be leashed and cats in their carriers.
