Reminder: Rabies Clinic October 24th in Stanfordville

Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County Department of Health will be hosting a free Rabies Vaccination Clinic for pets on Thursday, October 24th at the Stanford Firehouse, 6098 Route 82, Stanfordville, NY 12581 from 11 am-3 pm. Dutchess County residents will be able to obtain rabies shots free of charge for their dogs, cats, and domestic ferrets three months of age and older. Non-residents will be charged $10 for each pet they have vaccinated.

All dogs must be on a leash, and cats and domestic ferrets must be in carriers.  To receive a vaccination certificate that is good for three years, pet owners should bring written proof of previous rabies immunization for their pet(s).  Pet owners without written proof of previous rabies immunization for their pet(s) will receive a vaccination certificate that is good for one year.

In New York, all dogs, cats, and domestic ferrets must be vaccinated against rabies by the age of four months. Owners can be fined if they fail to get their pets vaccinated and keep them up-to-date.

For more information about pet vaccination clinic schedules or other rabies-related information call (845) 486-3404 Monday-Friday, 9 am - 5 pm or email at HealthInfo@DutchessNY.gov.
