Erie County Legislator John J. Mills 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.


“This free service helps to keep both pets and residents safe. All pet owners whose dog, cat or ferret is due for their rabies vaccination are encouraged to attend the clinic,” Legislator Mills said. “By participating, you can help protect our community against a rabies outbreak.”


The following requirements must be met in order to receive the 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 [3] pets in line at one time.
