Once again, Freehold Borough is hosting a free rabies vaccination clinic for cats and dogs on Jan. 27 from 10 a.m. to noon behind the Freehold firehouse at 49 W. Main St.
Although the rabies vaccination clinic is held in Freehold Borough, it is open to residents of any municipality. You do not need to bring any paperwork with you, nor does your animal need to be licensed in order to be vaccinated.
For registration purposes you will be asked your name, address, telephone number, the name and breed of your pet, his/her age, whether or not he/she is neutered or spayed and whether this is the animal’s first rabies vaccination.
The vaccination offers protection for your pet, family and the community. The animal must be at least 3 months old in order to be vaccinated and the first vaccination for an animal is good for one year. All subsequent vaccinations offer protection for three years. There is no limit as to the number of animals you can bring to have vaccinated. Dogs must be on a short leash and cats must be in a carrier.
For convenience purposes, dog and cat licensing will also be offered during the clinic. Any Freehold Borough resident can register their cats or dogs. Please provide proof of spay or neuter dates. License fees apply: Dogs, $14.20 or $11.20 if spayed or neutered. Cats, $10. Cash or check only.
For more information, call the Freehold Borough Health Department at 732-462-7057, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
