Lockport Union-Sun & Journal

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A free rabies immunization clinics for pets will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Lockport town highway garage, 6560 Dysinger Road.

All cats, dogs and domesticated ferrets must have a current rabies vaccination when they’re four months or older, according to state law.

Cats and dogs brought for vaccination will get a three-year certificate if proof is shown it’s not their first vaccination, or a one-year certificate without proof of prior vaccination. Ferrets are supposed to be vaccinated every year.

Any resident bringing more than six animals to the clinic should call the Niagara County Department of Health before Saturday, so paperwork can be processed more efficiently. To make the arrangement, call 439-7511.

Cats and ferrets should be brought to the clinic in a box or carrier; dogs should be leashed.

An additional clinic will be held Dec. 7 at the North Tonawanda public works garage.
