Fall Rabies Clinic Set For October 6

The Bradford County Humane Society and the Athens Animal Hospital have once again teamed up to provide a low cost Rabies Clinic for the local community.

On Saturday, October 6th from 10am -Noon people may bring their leashed dogs or cats in crates to the Athens Township Building on the corner of Elmira and Herrick Avenue in Athens. Patrons must also bring the pets' current rabies shot record.

The cost for the rabies vaccination is only $5.00.

"It is extremely important for animals to have a current rabies shot. Even if you think your cat is only an inside cat, or your dog would never come into contact with the rabies virus, you could be wrong. There has been some incidents of various wildlife being contaminated with rabies. The last thing you would want is to put your animals' life or your own life in danger, by your pet possibly contracting the rabies virus," states Jennifer L. Spencer, BCHS Executive Director.
