The free rabies clinic, sponsored by the Manalapan Health Department, has been rescheduled to Saturday, Dec. 15. The original date was Saturday, Nov. 3 but the clinic was not held due to Hurricane Sandy.
All dogs and cats over 6-months-old must be vaccinated against rabies, and the Manalapan Health Department is sponsoring this clinic so that all local pets can get vaccinated for free.
Head on over to the Kuschik Pavilion within the Manalapan Recreation Center on Dec. 15 between 9 a.m. and noon to have your four-legged friend vaccinated against rabies. All dogs must be on a leash and all cats must be confined to carriers, Manalapan Health Department Director Dave Richardson said.
Rabies is a viral disease that causes brain inflammation and can be easily transmitted from one species to another, mostly by a bite of an infected animal.
Rabies in humans is consistently fatal, which is why the vaccinations of Manalapan’s pets is of the utmost importance!
