Poughkeepsie … Due to the anticipated arrival of Hurricane Sandy, Dutchess County Department of Health will be rescheduling their Rabies Clinic in Dover originally planned for Tuesday, October 30th.

“After careful consideration and discussion, it has been decided to be in the best interest and safety of our residents and their pets to postpone this clinic,” said Dutchess County Commissioner of Health Michael C. Caldwell, MD, MPH.  Dr. Caldwell is encouraging residents to prepare for the upcoming storm by securing bottles of drinking water, batteries, fuel for generators, medications, and other emergency supplies noting Hurricane Sandy may cause power outages.
