Protect your pet’s health

Warren County Public Health will be holding a rabies clinic from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday March 9 at the Queensbury Community Center, 742 Bay Road.

Pets must be three months old to receive their first immunization, which will afford them protection for one year. The next shot, a booster, will offer protection for three years — and is required one year after the first shot was given. From then on, every three years a booster should be given to protect pets. Both initial and booster shots are given at all county Public Health clinics.

A $10 donation is requested for each pet. No one is turned away due to financial hardship. Bring dogs on leashes and cats or ferrets in carriers. Call county Public Health at 761-6580 with questions.
