Fall rabies clinics set for Sept. 24 to 28
Every spring and fall, Haywood County Animal Services, the Haywood County Health Department and veterinarians from several animal hospitals around the county collaborate on a series of rabies clinics to encourage citizens to get their pets vaccinated.
According to North Carolina law, in order for a rabies vaccine to be current, all dogs, cats and ferrets ages four months old and older must be vaccinated against rabies. North Carolina courts have ruled that to be in compliance with the law, a licensed veterinarian must administer the rabies vaccination.
The clinics will be held at the following locations:
• Monday, Sept. 24 — Jonathan Valley School and Old Fines Creek School
• Tuesday, Sept. 25 — Canton Middle School (bus parking lot)
• Wednesday, Sept. 26 — Hazelwood Elementary School
