The clinic will serve pet owners with cats, ferrets and dogs, according to a press release from the county. The clinic will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Schenectady County Public Health Services has transitioned to electronic registration, meaning anyone looking to attend the clinic should register online at www.schenectadycounty.com/env-health for an appointment time and to provide information about their animal. People can also call 518-386-2818 to make an appointment. Space is limited. 

“It’s especially important this time of year to ensure your pets are vaccinated,” said Legislator Holly Vellano, who represents Rotterdam, Princetown and Duanesburg. “Rabies carrier species, including bats, raccoons and opossums, are much more active during the summer when pets tend to spend more time outdoors.”
