Town of North Hempstead Announces Free Rabies Clinic this Weekend: May 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are proud to announce that the Town’s Animal Shelter will be hosting a free rabies vaccination clinic in conjunction with the Nassau County Department of Health. The clinic will be held at the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter in Port Washington, on May 14 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
“Rabies is a preventable viral disease and this free service will allow pet owners to help keep their pets healthy and happy, as well as keep our community safe,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “It is important to keep updated with rabies vaccinations not only for the well-being of our Town but to be proper, law abiding citizens.”
Rabies vaccines are available to dogs and cats, as well as ferrets from around the area. You do not have to be a resident of North Hempstead for your pet to receive a free rabies vaccine. North Hempstead officials will also offer on-the-spot dog licensing applications and renewals to North Hempstead residents.
Owners must bring their dogs on leashes and their cats and ferrets in carriers. Registration is required.
