Are Your Dogs and Cats Up-to-Date with Rabies Vaccinations? Free Vaccination Clinics Begin April 17


Did you know that Montgomery County law requires all dogs, cats and ferrets over the age of four months to have a current vaccination against rabies? Because the health of humans, as well as animals is affected by the rabies virus, failure to vaccinate an animal as required may subject its owner to a $500 fine.

The Montgomery County Police Department’s Animal Services Division offers free rabies vaccination clinics with the purchase of a County Pet License. The first clinic of 2016 will be held on Sunday, April 17. Additional rabies clinics will be held the third Sunday of the month through September. All the clinics are held between 8 and 10:30 a.m. at the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) located at 7315 Muncaster Mill Road in Derwood. Please note that public parking at the MCASAC is limited.
