Rabies vaccination clinic set Jan. 19

Hanover County Animal Control will hold its final rabies vaccination clinic of the fall/winter season at the East Hanover Volunteer Rescue Squad building Saturday, Jan. 19, from 9 a.m. to noon. The East Hanover Volunteer Rescue Squad building is located at 8105 Walnut Grove Road in Mechanicsville.

A veterinarian will administer the vaccine for $7 per dog or cat. All dogs and cats four months of age and older must be vaccinated and have tags and a valid license proving the vaccination. The veterinarian will administer the shots at your vehicle without you having to bring your pet inside. The vaccination is good up to three years.

Animals who have been infected by rabies pose a health threat to Hanover County residents and their pets. So far this year there have been 11 confirmed cases of animal rabies in the County.
