Low-Cost Vaccine & Microchip Clinic

Our clinic dates for 2022 are...

Each year, BARCS’ monthly low-cost public vaccine and microchip clinic serves more than 3,000 owned pets in our community. The clinic is for Baltimore City resident pet owners** and is held on the first Saturday of every month (unless otherwise noted above). Vaccine prices range from $6-$10 (cash preferred) in order to allow pet owners to provide their animals with proper care. Pet owners can also have their pets microchipped at the clinics as well as purchase and renew their Baltimore City Pet License(s).

**Due to the high volume of pets we serve at these clinics, you can expect to wait in line for several hours. We encourge you to look into other low-cost vaccine clinics in the area as well.
