GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County Animal Care is offering pet owners a chance to save some money and protect their animals.

From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday, $1 canine and feline rabies and distemper vaccines are being offered to the community.

Additionally, heartworm testing is available for $8. The event was also held Thursday, but the discount is only good through Friday.

There is no appointment necessary and customers are asked to bring cats in carriers and keep dogs on leashes.

The discounts are paid for in part from an ASPCA grant.

Greenville County Animal Care is located at 328 Furman Hall Rd. in Greenville and the vaccines are offered at the education building.

In South Carolina, pet owners are required by law to keep their dogs, cats and ferrets updated on the rabies vaccine. The vaccination usually lasts one year, though some veterinarians offer multi-year versions for dogs and cats.
