Rabies clinics are held for animals throughout the year. New York State requires a current rabies vaccine for every dog, cat, or ferret. These clinics are held at various locations in the county.
All dogs, cats, and ferrets should be vaccinated against rabies at 3 months of age and re-vaccinated 1 year later, then every 3 years thereafter. Please bring proof of any previous rabies vaccination. Vaccines are administered in accordance with the National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians (NASPHV).
All Washington County Rabies clinics are free to the public.
Keep the following in mind when you are attending Rabies Clinics:
*Bring proof of their previous vaccination with you if you have it!!!
(Tags do not count as proof of vaccination, you need the paperwork.)
Note: You can still register if you don't have the paperwork, however, your vaccination will be marked as a 1 year vaccination until you send proof of the previous vaccination. Once proof of previous vaccination is produced, the vaccination will be changed to a 3 year vaccination.
*Leave pets in your vehicle until you have registered your animals
*All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier.
*All Dogs and Cats should be vaccinated against rabies @ 3 months of age and re-vaccinated one year later, then every three years thereafter.
*Ferrets should be vaccinated against rabies @ 3 months of age and re-vaccinated yearly thereafter.
*Please come prepared to clean up after your pets if needed.
