Clinic Tech Aide

The GTHS runs a low-cost Rabies Vaccine and Microchip Clinic eight times a year for local pet owners; four on-site at our Animal Centre and four off-site at various venues within the community. Providing these services protects cats and dogs against the deadly Rabies disease and allows animals to be quickly reunited with their families when lost.
