Rabies Shots

-A A +A
The Town of Stonington will be conducting a low-cost rabies vaccination clinic for dogs and cats on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 10:00 am - noon at the Stonington Police Dept., 173 South Broad St., Pawcatuck. The fee for a rabies shot will be $20.00 cash only. All dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a carrier.
 
State law requires that all dogs and cats six months of age be vaccinated against rabies. Written proof of a prior vaccination is required for a three year certificate. Dogs six months old or which have not been vaccinated before must receive a one year vaccination.
 
Dog licenses will also be issued at the clinic. Dog licenses must be purchased by the end of June at a cost of $8.00 for a neutered or spayed dog and $19.00 for all other dogs. After June 30th, by law, there will be an additional charge of $1.00 per month for each month that a dog over six months of age is not licensed.
 
The low-cost vaccinations are being co-sponsored by the Stonington Police Department and the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association. Everyone owning either a cat or a dog is strongly encouraged to have both vaccinated because of the existence of rabies throughout the state.
