Animal Rabies clinics are offered at several locations in the Spring and in the Fall to provide for the economical vaccination of dogs, cats, and ferrets.

For animals to receive a 3 year vaccination, please present a current vaccination certificate.

Otherwise, all shots will be for 1 year only.

In Maryland, all dogs, cats, and ferrets must be vaccinated against rabies before 4 months of age.

Rabies continues in Somerset County and a vaccination is your pet’s only protection from the virus.
