An anti-rabies immunization clinic for dogs, cats and ferrets will be held at the Pembroke highway department on Route 5 Thursday, April 12th.
The clinic is open from 4pm until 7pm and it’s is free to Genesee County residents and $5.00 for non-county residents.
The only information needed is the pet owners name and address just incase pets get lost at the clinic.
Interim Public Health Director of the Genesee County Health Department David Whitcroft said this clinic is an inexpensive way to protect yourself and pets from a fatal disease.
“Rabies is a reality we send in animals each year and we’ve had positive specimens each year, certainly in the wild the population of skunks, foxes and bats of course. We know it’s here and it’s not going to go away,” said Whitcroft.
Donations to the county health department are accepted.
Whitcroft said to make sure cats and ferrets are securely in their cages and dogs are on their leashes.
