“We are excited to be joining with the Southeast Louisiana Veterinary Association and the Jefferson SPCA to host this important event for our four-legged friends here in Jefferson Parish,” said the Director of Jefferson Protection & Animal Welfare Services Michelle Brignac. “Rabies vaccinations are not only required by law for dogs and cats, but the shot is also essential in order to prevent your pet from acquiring the disease from wildlife and prevents possible transmission to your family or other people.”
