Seattle Humane is working with several local animal shelters, nonprofits and government entities to create a multi-site vaccination clinic for World Rabies Day for the Rabies Hero campaign (part of Rabies Free Africa) on Saturday, Sept. 26. The goal is to get pets belonging to low-income individuals or people experiencing homelessness updated on recommended vaccines – including rabies.
For World Rabies Day, this multi-site vaccination effort is bringing together Seattle Humane, Doney Coe Pet Clinic, the One Health Clinic, Rainier Animal Fund, Regional Animal Services of King County and Seattle Animal Shelter. Each clinic will focus on providing wellness checks and essential vaccines for clients. Pet food and supply donations will be available at each site as well.
Here is a list of sites and the corresponding organizations where pet owners will be able to obtain vaccinations and other supplies from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26:
- Seattle Humane will be in the Umpqua Bank parking lot, 146 W. 2nd St., North Bend.
- Seattle Animal Shelter/Doney Coe Pet Clinic will be in the Trupanion parking lot, 6100 4th Ave. S., in Seattle.

Rabies Hero was launched to advance public awareness in addressing public health officials’ concern around the country and the world that there could be secondary disease outbreaks in both humans and animals as people missed routine care during COVID-19. By spending September focusing on recommended vaccines for pets, we strive to prevent outbreaks in many communities.
