The Charles County Animal Control and Charles County Department of Health are sponsoring a free rabies clinic on Sunday, June 4, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bel Alton Volunteer Fire Department (9765 Bel Alton Newtown Road, Bel Alton). Protect the ones you love by ensuring your pets have the proper vaccinations. Maryland law requires all dogs, cats, and ferrets to be vaccinated for rabies
Dog and cat licenses will be available for purchase at the clinic. The fee for a pet license is $5 if your animal is altered and $25 if your animal is not altered. All pets over 4 months old must be licensed to comply with the Charles County Ordinance. If your pet becomes lost, a license will improve the chances of identifying the animal and returning it to you. A license also lets others know your pet is up-to-date with its vaccinations.
At the clinic, all dogs must be leashed, and all cats and ferrets must be contained in a carrier.
