Rabies Vaccination Clinic Scheduled for April 9

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 6, 2011

Spring has sprung!  As everyone spends more time outside enjoying warmer temperatures, there’s also an increased chance of coming into contact with rabid animals.  Make sure you and your furry tailwaggers are protected by getting them vaccinated!

Last year, there were eight confirmed cases of rabies in Alamance County.  Seven of the eight cases involved dog or cats whose rabies vaccination had lapsed, resulting in their untimely euthanization.

Rabies is easily preventable.  As a part of Public Health Month activities, you can get your dog or cat (four months or older) vaccinated at our convenient Saturday rabies clinic!  It’s not a choice, it’s the law!
