The Chemung County Health Department is offering a free rabies clinic on Sunday, March 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the John Girdley Building on 103 Washington Street in Elmira.
All animals must be with an adult who can hold them during the shot, and all animals must be securely confined. Dogs may be on a leash.
Dogs, cats, and ferrets must be at least three months old to receive the vaccination. Initial vaccinations are good for only a year and must be renewed one year after the initial shot.
Ferrets must be vaccinated every year.
Dogs and cat owners who have previously had their pet vaccinated must bring proof of prior vaccination to receive a rabies certificate that is good for three years.
The clinic is free and for New York residents only, and donations are appreciated.
