County Animal Control makes it easy for people to get their pets vaccinated by
holding Rabies Vaccination Clinics
in the fall and winter. The final
clinic of this season will be held on Saturday, February 2, at the East Hanover
Rescue Squad from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The East Hanover Rescue Squad is located at
8105 Walnut Grove Road in Mechanicsville.
will be administered at a cost of $8.00 per dog or cat. The veterinarian will
administer the shots to the pet at your vehicle; do not bring pets into the
building! You will complete your
registration inside the facility and return to your vehicle. Drive to the area designated for vaccination. You will be expected to leave the vaccination
area as soon as you are done.
healthy, non-pregnant animals will be vaccinated. No wolf or cat hybrids or animals other than
dogs or cats will be vaccinated.
vaccination is good for up to three years unless the pet has never had a rabies
vaccination before, in which case, it is good for one year. Put the rabies tag on the dog’s collar and
keep certificates for proof of vaccination.
dogs and cats (including so-called ‘barn cats’) are required by law to be
vaccinated for rabies at four months of age. You also must have tags and a valid license
proving the vaccination.
