Saturdays through June 11, DC’s Department of Health is offering clinics for pets at locations throughout the city. The goal is to prevent and control the spread of diseases between pets and humans.

Services include vaccinations, licensing, and microchipping, plus opportunities to speak with a veterinarian. The vaccinations, available for cats and dogs, are free, but licensing—for dogs only—costs $15 for spayed or neutered pets and $50 for non-fixed ones. The Washington Humane Society will offer microchipping for $35.

Here’s where the clinics will be popping up:

Saturday, May 14
9 to 11:30 AM: King Greenleaf Recreation Center (201 N St., SW)
1:30 to 4 PM: Southeast Tennis and Learning Center (701 Mississippi Ave., SE) 

Saturday, May 21
