Health Department Will Hold Rabies Clinic June 13 in Volney
VOLNEY -- The Oswego County Health Department will hold a rabies clinic Wednesday, June 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bristol Hill Landfill, State Route 3, Volney.
All cats, dogs, and pet ferrets are required by state law to have a current rabies shot. Animals may receive their first rabies vaccine at age three months. The first shot will protect 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 suggests a $5 donation to help cover the cost of the clinics, but no one will be turned away.
To report a possible exposure to rabies, or for more information about rabies, call the County Health Department weekdays at 349-3564 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 3564. In an emergency during evenings, weekends, or holidays, call the health department's answering service at 341-0086.
