Olmsted County hosts 64th annual rabies vaccination clinic
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – In partnership with local veterinarians, Olmsted County is hosting its 64th annual rabies vaccination clinic on June 22, 2022.
According to Olmsted County, veterinarians will provide rabies vaccinations for dogs, cats, and ferrets for only $20 each, cash only.
Pet owners should bring their animals in pet carrier devices or on a leash. Event staff are not responsible for pets that escape their collars, leashes, or cages at the clinics.
These clinics are an opportunity for pet owners to help protect their pets, family, and community from rabies. While most rabies cases occur in wild animals like skunks, bats, and raccoons, protecting our pets and families by providing necessary vaccinations is crucial.
Wild animals may often be a source of rabies exposure for domestic pets and livestock.
The household pets and livestock most frequently reported rabid are cats, dogs, and cattle.
Vaccinated pets also prevent the spread of rabies from wildlife to humans.
