Free rabies clinic scheduled Thursday
The Chautauqua County Department of Health, in conjunction with the Chautauqua County Humane Society, announces that the final free rabies vaccination clinic of 2012 will be held on Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Chautauqua County Humane Society, 2825 Strunk Road, Jamestown. Dr. Melissa Schrope is the attending veterinarian.
Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets three months of age and older. 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. It is helpful for the veterinarian to know the previous immunization status of each animal to ensure proper and effective vaccination.
New York State Public Health Law requires each dog, cat and domesticated ferret over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies.
