[ARCHIVED] Final rabies vaccination clinic of the season held February 1

The final Hanover County Animal Control rabies vaccination clinic of the 2019-20 season will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, at the East Hanover Rescue Squad from 9 a.m. to noon. The East Hanover Rescue Squad is located at 8105 Walnut Grove Road in Mechanicsville.

All dogs and cats (including so-called ‘barn cats’) are required by law to be vaccinated for rabies at four months of age. For dogs, you also must have tags and a valid license proving the vaccination. The vaccines cost $8 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.

Only healthy, non-pregnant animals will be vaccinated. No wolf hybrids or animals other than domestic dogs or cats will be vaccinated.

The 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.

For more information call Animal Control at 365-6485.
