Niagara County Department of Health offers free rabies immunization clinics


Wed, Mar 20th 2024 04:40 pm

Submitted by the Niagara County Department of Health

Rabies vaccination prevents fatal disease in dogs, cats and ferrets. Rabies is a viral disease that, in most cases, results in death of the animal not adequately protected with a rabies vaccination. New York state law requires all cats, dogs and ferrets to have current rabies vaccinations from 4 months of age and on. Vaccinated pets serve as a buffer between rabid wildlife and humans. Rabies vaccination protects your pet and reduces your risk of exposure to rabies.

Niagara County Department of Health offers free rabies immunization clinics. Appointments are required and may be scheduled online at www.niagaracounty.com/rabiesclinic or by calling 716-439-7490. Registration opens the first business day of the week of the clinic date. A separate registration is required for each pet. Walk-ins will not be accepted.

Dog and cat owners are asked to bring proof of their pet’s vaccination with them to the clinic in order to receive a three-year vaccination certificate; otherwise, a one-year certificate will be issued. Ferrets will be issued a one-year certificate. Dogs must be secured with a collar and leash or be in a carrier. Please do not use retractable leashes. Cats and ferrets must be secured in a carrier.
