The UNC Asheville Police Department will host a rabies clinic for dogs and cats on Saturday, June 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Enter the campus from the W.T. Weaver Boulevard rotary and bear left at the top of the hill to find the rabies clinic in parking lots P25 and P26.

This event is open to the public and will include family-friendly activities such as a band performance by The Melons, a band featuring UNC Asheville students, ice cream from The Hop, and a chance for kids to climb aboard Engine No. 7 from the Asheville Fire Department.

The clinic also provides a chance to meet UNC Asheville's beloved mascot Rocky, a rescued white Victorian bulldog. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue and the Asheville Humane Society will be on hand with pets to adopt.
