Midland Park

Free Rabies Clinic Set For May 12

04/08/2014 09:42PM ● By Rebecca K. Abma

The Midland Park Board of Health will be holding its annual Rabies Program to give FREE Rabies Vaccinations on Monday, May 12 from 6:30pm till 8:00pm. The program will take place at the Municipal Building, 280 Godwin Avenue in Midland Park. Dogs must be on leashes and cats must be in carriers; both dogs and cats are welcomed at any time. No retractable leashes can be used. Residents from other municipalities are welcome to bring their pets to the program.

Rabies vaccinations are required by the NJ Department of Health for ALL dogs and cats four months of age and older (but not less than 12 weeks of age). A booster vaccination should be given one year later and every three years thereafter. Please check the status of your dog’s or cat’s rabies vaccination records. Rabies is always a potential danger to humans and domestic animals if exposed to a rabid animal. Be proactive and have your pets vaccinated.

Bergen County has been one of the state’s leading counties for positive rabies cases over the past four years. Carol Tyler, Midland Park Animal Control Officer for 20 years states that, “although rabies is a deadly disease, it is easily prevented by keeping your pets vaccinated.  The unnecessary risk you could put yourself and your family at by not vaccinating your pet is easily controlled by attending the free rabies program”.
