Erie County Legislator Joseph Lorigo encourages pet owners to take advantage of the County’s free rabies clinic for dogs, cats, and ferrets on Wednesday, May 29.
Organized by the Erie County Department of Health, in partnership with the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society and the SPCA, serving Erie County, the clinic is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, at Erie Community College’s South Campus, Building No. 7 – Maintenance Garage, 4401 Southwestern Blvd., Orchard Park.
“The county provides a certain number of these free clinics throughout the year so it is important for residents to take advantage of them when they offered to help reduce the risk of rabies outbreaks in our community,” said Legislator Lorigo.
The following requirements must be met in order to receive the rabies vaccination:
1. Pets must be at least three  months of age to receive a rabies vaccination.
2. Proof of previous rabies vaccination must be provided to receive a three-year certificate; otherwise a one-year certificate will be issued.
3. All dogs, cats, and ferrets must be restrained using a leash and/or pet carrier.
4. No person shall be allowed to have more than three  pets in line at one time.
