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.

“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 [3] months of age to receive a rabies vaccination.
