Erie County Legislator Lynn M. Marinelli (D-Buffalo, Tonawanda) is announcing that the Erie County Department of Health will conduct a free rabies clinic from 4-7 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, at the American Legion Post #1041, 533 Amherst Street, Buffalo.
Pet owners should know that: pets must be at least three months of age to receive a rabies vaccination; proof of previous rabies vaccination must be provided to receive a three-year certificate, otherwise a one-year certificate will be issued; all dogs, cats and ferrets must be restrained using a leash and/or pet carrier, and no person shall be allowed to have more than three pets in line at one time.
“We must protect families and their pets from rabies, and these free clinics are a great way to do that,” Legislator Marinelli said. “I applaud the efforts of the Erie County Health Department, the SPCA, and the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society for working together to keep our community safe from rabies, and I urge pet owners to bring in their dog, cat, or ferret for a vaccination.”
The clinic, for dogs, cats and ferrets, will be conducted in association with the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society and theSPCAServingErieCounty. For more information, please call the Erie County Department of Health at 858-7690 or Legislator Marinelli’s office at 832-0493.
