1/24/14: Poloncarz Reminds Residents of Upcoming Free Rabies Clinic


January 29 Clinic Provides Free Vaccinations for Dogs, Cats, Ferrets

ERIE COUNTY, NY— Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz reminds residents that the Erie County Department of Health (“ECDOH”), in association with the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society and the SPCA Serving Erie County, will conduct a free rabies vaccination clinic next Wednesday, January 29, 2014. Vaccinations are available for dogs, cats, and ferrets. Residents are asked to bring their pet to the clinic either on a leash or in a carrier, and to bring along the animals’ vaccination record as well, if possible.

“These free rabies clinics provide a no-cost way for residents to protect themselves and the animals they love from rabies, and have been very popular in past years,” said Poloncarz. “In 2013, over 5,600 animals were vaccinated countywide through these clinics, so I strongly encourage pet owners to take advantage of this program and start the year off right with rabies protection for their four-legged friends. I also want to thank the Department of Health and their partners for the hard work they do and for once again making this vital service available to residents.”

  • Wednesday, January 29, 2014
  • 3:00 – 7:00 PM
