The Pomperaug District Department of Health, Southbury Animal Control and Southbury Veterinary Hospital are working together to provide a low cost rabies clinic for dogs and cats. The clinic will be held on Sunday, June 3 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Southbury Town Garage on Peter Road.
The cost is $15.00 CASH ONLY per animal. There are no residency requirements. Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in carriers. Cats on leashes will not be accepted. Collar tags and certificates will be provided as required by law. Doctor Joseph Ross of Southbury Veterinary Hospital will be donating his services and the vaccine for this event. All proceeds will be donated to local charities.
Connecticut law requires that all dogs and cats 3 months of age or older be vaccinated against rabies. Written proof of prior vaccination for rabies must be presented to qualify for a three-year certificate. Tags are not acceptable proof. A one-year certificate will be given to all others. This is in compliance with the directive of the State Veterinarian. State Law requires that all pets vaccinated for the first time in 2011 must be re-vaccinated within 1 year.
