MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Nearly two weeks after a raccoon that bit two people in Montgomery tested positive for rabies, a rabies clinic was held at 12 different locations across the River Region.

“People are too tight to go to the vet and spend money on their animal," said retired veterinarian Dr. Richard Green.

The vaccinations were offered at the discounted price of $12. On average, rabies vaccinations cost around $30.

“You can’t beat the price for one thing, and I have a great grandbaby, and I want to make sure that Maggie plays with her and I want to make sure that nothing’s going on with her in case she snags the baby," said Arkee Badrake.

She brought her dog Maggie out to Carver High School to get her vaccinated.

After hearing about the raccoon with rabies in Montgomery, Terrilyn Ellis made sure her 16-year-old dog, KoKo, was the first in line to get his shot.

“I’ve seen raccoons and I want to protect him, because I allow him to walk freely in my neighborhood. So, I don’t want him to get any rabies. I want to keep him as long as I can," Ellis said.

The clinics will also be held on May 19 at the same locations from 2-5 p.m.
