MAYVILLE - The Chautauqua County Department of Health announces a free rabies vaccination clinic will be held on Thursday, March 21 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., at the Ag and Expo Building, Chautauqua County Fairgrounds, 1121 Central Ave., Dunkirk.
Participants are asked to enter at the Waldorff Road entrance to the fairgrounds. Dr. Josef Powell will be the attending veterinarian.
Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets 3 months of age and older. All pets must be on a leash or in a cage, and rabies vaccination records should be brought for each animal receiving a shot. It is helpful for the veterinarian to know the previous immunization status of each animal to ensure proper and effective vaccination.
New York State Public Health Law requires each dog, cat and domesticated ferret over the age of 4 months be vaccinated against rabies. County residents are encouraged to be responsible pet owners by having pets vaccinated.
