Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz announces upcoming rabies clinics, conducted by the Erie County Department of Health in association with the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society and the SPCA Serving Erie County. Free rabies vaccinations are available for dogs, cats and ferrets.
"Earlier this year, hundreds of pet owners protected their animals and families from rabies by bringing them for free vaccinations at our springtime rabies clinics," Poloncarz said. "It is the law that all dogs and cats in Erie County get vaccinated against rabies, and this program is a great, free way for all citizens to follow the law.
"I would like to thank the Department of Health and their partners for working together to provide this vital service to residents, and I encourage pet owners around the county to take advantage of the program this September."
