Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets three (3) months of age and older. Please know that all pets must be on a leash or in a cage; and you should bring rabies vaccination records for each animal that will be receiving a shot.

Rabies is a very serious disease of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus. Raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes are the common disease carriers. The virus is transmitted to humans and animals through saliva. It can enter the body from a bite, scratch, scrape or open cut. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system, causing brain swelling and ultimately death within days of the onset of symptoms.

For more information on the March 21st clinic and rabies in general, please see the Health Department's website at: www.myhealthycounty.com or contact the Health Department at 753-4481.
