“Free Rabies Clinic Offered by the Chemung County Health Department”

 

The Chemung County Health Department, in conjunction with the SPCA, will be offering the following free rabies vaccination clinic to New York State residents:

Chapel Park

83 Personius Road, Pine City, NY 14871

Saturday, June 10, 2023

11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Pre-Registration is required. The link for pre-registration can be found on Chemung County’s website (www.chemungcountyny.gov/rabies) and on the Health Department’s Facebook page.   Please arrive at your designated appointment time.

Cats, dogs, and ferrets, three months of age or older, must be on a leash or in a carrier and under the control of a responsible adult.   Erin Walmsley, Supervising Public Health Sanitarian with the Chemung County Health Department, reminds dog and cat owners to bring proof of previous rabies vaccination if they wish to receive a three-year certificate for their pets.

To ensure the smooth operation of the clinics, Ms. Walmsley recommends that owners have

one adult per pet. Dog owners should also come prepared to clean up after their animals should accidents occur.   Cat owners lacking carriers should talk to clinic staff before removing their animals from their vehicles.  

 The NYS Sanitary Code and Public Health Law require that all cats, dogs, and ferrets (four months of age or older) be vaccinated to prevent rabies.  Please be aware that pet owners who do not comply with NYS Public Health Law rabies vaccination requirements may be subject to a fine of up to $200.  Free rabies clinics are provided at least every four months throughout he year so that there should be no excuse for pet owners not to get their pets vaccinated.

Residents are urged to take advantage of these free clinics to be responsible pet owners and to avoid being in violation of the law.

 For more information or if special assistance is needed at the clinic, contact the Chemung County Health Department at 737-2019 or EHS@chemungcountyny.gov.
