County vaccination clinic for cats, dogs and ferrets
On Saturday, Oct. 13, Schenectady County residents will have an opportunity to have their dogs, cats and ferrets vaccinated for rabies by an area veterinarian at little or no cost.
As one of many volunteers for this program, I have enjoyed being able to spend a little time meeting the animals, and am delighted that so many owners have chosen to protect their pets and others by bringing their animals to one of the four yearly clinics.
The Schenectady County Department of Environmental Health is in charge of the program, and the process from registration to vaccination is easy to follow and takes very little time.
With municipal budgets tight, and cuts being made to many government services, it is gratifying to see that Schenectady County continues to offer this important program, which truly benefits everyone.
I urge residents whose animals are not vaccinated to visit the Princetown Town Hall on Saturday. Cats and ferrets will be vaccinated from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., and dogs will be vaccinated from 11 a.m. until noon.
