Low Cost Vaccine Clinic

The Licking County Humane Society is now offering a low-cost Vaccination Clinic to help ensure the animals in Licking County are protected from diseases. Our low-cost Vaccination Clinics are held two to three days every month at LCHS, 825 Thornwood Dr. Heath, OH 43056. This is a walk-in clinic; no appointment is necessary. It operates on a first come, first serve basis, until the clinic for that day is full. Our clinics sometimes have high demand and it is necessary to close off further walk-ins toward the end of the clinic time. Please plan accordingly.

We are a Vaccine Clinic – We cannot look at owned sick/injured animals. If your animal is ill, you will need to take them to a full service vet clinic to be seen. 

Your pet must be at least 8 weeks, 2 months, old to receive vaccinations.

We also ask that no more than 2 animals are brought per person, with the exception of litters of kittens/puppies.

Please do not bring dogs with bark collars to the clinic.

Although we do not offer full veterinarian services, we do offer many basic services such as, heartworm tests, rabies vaccinations, and feline leukemia tests, to name a few. You can also purchase preventatives, such as heartworm prevention and flea/tick prevention, at low-cost.

Please bring any previous vaccine records for your pet to the clinic. All dogs must be leashed and all cats must be in a carrier. Each animal will receive a physical examination ($25) prior to any administration of any vaccine to ensure they are healthy enough to be vaccinated.

For your convenience and to save time when you arrive to the clinic, below is the Low-Cost Vaccination Clinic registration form, that you may fill out ahead of time. You will NOT be able to pay online, so please bring payment with you on the day of your clinic. We can accept cash, check, and credit.

We also have registration forms available at the shelter which you may fill out when you arrive.

If you have any questions, please call us at (740) 522-7297, or send an email to info@lchspets.org
