Vax Your Pet!

North Carolina Law states “the owner of every dog and cat over four months of age shall have the animal vaccinated against rabies.” To remain properly immunized, a dog or cat must receive two rabies vaccinations one year apart, then one vaccination every three years thereafter. Dog and cat owners in Cumberland County who have not vaccinated their pet in accordance with this law are subject to a civil penalty in the amount of $100.

While at the clinic, please keep dogs leashed and cats in separate carriers or boxes or leave them in a car with the windows down or the air conditioner switched on. Owners may be held responsible for any damage their pet causes at the clinic.
