Microchip Identification

The City of Folsom recommends having your dog or cat microchipped, even if they typically remain indoors. When your pet has a microchip, an animal shelter or veterinary clinic can obtain your contact information by scanning the chip and requesting the information from the manufacturer. The City of Folsom offers microchip service for $20.  Contact the City of Folsom at 916-355-7230 for more information.

Low Cost Rabies Clinic

The City of Folsom Animal Services Department offers a low cost monthly rabies clinic for residents, providing an easy and affordable way for pet owners to rabies vaccinate, microchip and license Folsom’s four-legged residents. 

The clinic offers low cost rabies vaccinations and pet licensing services and is held on the fourth Wednesday of every month, excluding November and December, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Folsom City Lions Park at 403 Stafford Street.

Rabies vaccinations are offered for pets for $5, and for a limited time a microchip with lifetime registration is free with the purchase or renewal of a City of Folsom pet license at the clinic.

The City requires that all dogs and cats over four months of age be vaccinated against rabies and licensed. The City requests dogs are on leashes and cats are in carriers at the clinic.  Cash and checks accepted.
