Oswego County Rabies Clinic Schedule

5/6 through 11/4

The rabies virus, according to Oswego County Public Health Director Jiancheng Huang, continues to be active across Oswego County, and NYS law requires that all cats, dogs and ferrets be vaccinated against rabies. The first rabies vaccine should be given at 3 months of age, a 2nd one within one year of the first and subsequently every 3 years thereafter. In order for pets to receive their 3 year booster, proof of previous vaccination must be shown, so it is important to bring the vaccination certificate with you when attending the clinic. The health department suggests a $7 donation per animal, but no one will be turned away. Dogs must be leashed and cats and ferrets must be in a cage or crate. For more information about rabies, call the health department weekdays at 349-3564 or 1-800-596-3200 Ext 3564.Clinic schedules are as follows: Pulaski, May 6th 6 to 8 pm, County Hwy Garage, 957 Centerville Rd.
