Distributing educational materials
bullet Providing dog licensing services during the county's low-cost rabies clinics, which are conducted by local veterinarians. Clinics are usually held from May through July because this is when most rabies vaccines expire. If your dog's vaccine expires at another time you can go to a local vet to have the shot given.
bullet Distributing educational
to dog/cat owners
in order to help residents
stay abreast of the latest
animal laws so they can
continue to be responsible
pet owners.

If you need to have your pet
vaccinated, please contact your
local veterinarian or check pet
stores to see if they are offering
any vaccination clinics.
