KENNEDY, NY (WNY News Now) – In lieu of recent rabies-related incidents, the Chautauqua County Health Department will be hosting a free rabies clinic for pets later this month. 

Animals must be pre-registered to receive vaccinations, which will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats, and domesticated ferrets three months of age or older. 

There are a limited number of available spots, so officials urge pet owners to pre-register as soon as possible. If you are pre-registered and are unable to attend, you can cancel your appointment via email to give the slot to another pet.

Pet owners will remain inside their vehicles with their pets unless instructed otherwise, and must provide previous rabies vaccination records for each pet receiving immunizations to ensure proper and effective vaccination. Clinic staff will then confirm previous vaccination records. 

Officials do stress that all dogs must remain on a leash and cats in individual carriers. 

All cats, dogs, and domesticated ferrets of age must be up to date on their rabies vaccinations in accordance with New York State law. 

The clinic will be held on Saturday, July 29 from 3 p.m to 5 p.m at the Town of Poland Highway Department with Dr. Katie Ball.
