The clinic will be offered on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. for cats and 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for dogs at the Gloucester County Government Services Building located at 1200 North Delsea Drive in Clayton.

The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Gloucester County Animal Shelter encourage residents to take advantage of an added date for the free rabies clinic being offered on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. for cats and 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for dogs at the Gloucester County Government Services Building located at 1200 North Delsea Drive in Clayton.

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “rabies cases in the wild animal population within our county have been high and it makes it that much more important that pets are protected. We want our residents to take advantage of the free rabies clinics we offer in order to ensure the safety of their animals should they ever come in contact with infected animals.”

Freeholder Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco, liaison to the Gloucester County Animal Shelter said, “vaccinating our pets is just as important as vaccinating ourselves. By keeping your pet up to date on its vaccines, you can help protect your pet and other animals around your pet from diseases.”
