Rabies Vaccination Clinics March 27 Through April 19

Mar 23, 2018

From March 27 until April 19, rabies vaccination clinics for dogs and cats will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. A total of 16 clinics at different sites throughout the county are scheduled. The cost is $10 per animal.

 

North Carolina law requires that “the owner of every dog and cat over four months of age shall have the animal vaccinated against rabies.” In Cumberland County, the owners of dogs and cats which have not been vaccinated in accordance with this law are subject to a civil penalty in the amount of $100.

 

To remain properly immunized, a dog or cat must receive two rabies vaccinations one year apart, then one vaccination every three years thereafter.

 

While at the clinics, please keep dogs on leashes and keep cats in separate carriers or boxes or leave them in the car. Owners may be held responsible for their pets and for any damage they cause.

 

The only method of payment accepted is cash. Please bring exact change to pay the $10 per animal fee. Please do not bring rolled coins. Checks will not be accepted.

 

For more information, call Animal Control at 910-321-6852 or the Environmental Health Division of the Cumberland County Public Health Department at 910-433-3600.
