Health Department Will Hold Rabies Clinic in Granby Aug. 10

The Oswego County Health Department will hold a rabies clinic from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Granby Town Highway Garage. The Granby clinic will replace the Aug. 10 clinic at the Bristol Hill solid waste facility that was previously announced.

Clinics will be held at these locations:

  • June 15: Bristol Hill solid waste facility, state Route 3, Volney.
  • July 20: County highway garage, state Route 104, Scriba.
  • Aug. 10: Granby town highway garage, county Route 8, Volney.
  • Sept. 14: County highway garage, county Route 2A, Pulaski; and
  • Nov. 2: County highway garage, Dill Pickle Alley, Parish.

All dogs, cats and pet ferrets are required by state law to have current rabies shots. Animals may receive their first rabies vaccine at age three months. The first shot protects the animal from rabies for one year. Subsequent shots last for three years. Pet owners should bring their pet's last rabies certificate to the clinic.

The health department requests a $5 donation per animal to help cover the cost of the rabies clinics.

Any person or pet that comes in contact with a sick or suspicious-acting animal should be reported to the county health department as soon as possible. A bite or scratch on the skin should be washed immediately with soap and water.

For more information, call the health department, weekdays at 349-3564 or 800-596-3200, ext. 3564. In an emergency during evenings, weekends, or holidays, call the health department's answering service at 341-0086.
