The Bradford County Humane Society (BCHS) and Towanda Creek Animal Hospital have once again teamed up to provide a low cost Rabies Clinic for the local community.
On Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to noon, people may bring their leashed dogs or cats in crates to Bishop’s True Value (the building behind the True Value Store) on Route 220 in Ulster. Patrons must also bring the pets’ current rabies shot record.
The cost for the rabies vaccination is $8.00.
This year, 2017 dog licenses will also be offered to those in need. Costs vary dependent on whether the dog is altered and whether the owner is disabled or a senior citizen.
“It is extremely important for animals to have a current rabies shot. Even if you think your cat is only an inside cat, or your dog would never come into contact with the rabies virus, you could be wrong. There have been reported incidences of various wildlife being contaminated with rabies. The last thing you would want is to put your animals’ life or your own life in danger, by your pet possibly contracting the rabies virus,” stated Jennifer L. Spencer, BCHS executive director.
BCHS is a United Way Agency.
