SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The Caddo Parish Animal Services provided free rabies shots and free microchipping to pets with owners who live in the parish.

The department said this was an effort to protect the area’s pet population.

”The importance of the rabies, of course we live in northwest Louisiana so we have a lot of variants, to protect your animal. It’s always great, especially if they’re out and about in the wilderness, or even if an animal comes up and interacts with them in your backyard. It’s always great to be protected,” said Kelvin Samuel, assistant director.

The parish says they plan to have another event like this soon.
