Tompkins Health Dept and SPCA offering free rabies clinics

Got a dog, cat, or ferret? The Tompkins County Health Department and SPCA of Tompkins County are teaming up to offer free rabies vaccination clinics around the area over the next few weeks.

tompkins-healthThe free rabies clinics begin next Wednesday, and run into mid October, in four Tompkins County towns and in the City of Ithaca. If your pet is due for a rabies vaccination, or if you’re not sure, this is a good opportunity to get up to date at no cost.

SPCA volunteers will be on hand at each event to make ID tags and distribute low-cost spay and neuter applications. Bring proof of prior vaccination with you if you’d like to receive a three-year certification.

Clinic Dates

  • September 28 at Newfield school bus garage
  • September 29 at Groton fire station
  • October 5 at Caroline highway garage
  • October 6 at Trumansburg school bus garage
  • October 12 at Ithaca central fire station

Additional clinics will take place at the SPCA in January and in Lansing, Dryden, Danby, Enfield, and Ithaca in the spring of 2017.

All five clinics this fall are scheduled from 7-9pm, and more information is available from the Tompkins County Health Department at 607-274-6688.
