CLAYTON — The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders in collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services and Gloucester County Animal Shelter (GCAS) have announced the dates for the 2020 Free Rabies Vaccination Clinic offered to residents’ pets taking place from Jan. to April.

To ensure the health and safety of themselves and their pets, pet owners are urged to check the vaccination status of their pets, avoid wild animals and keep their distance from stray dogs and cats, advise children not to handle wild or stray animals, and contact animal control at (856-881-2828) if they see an animal acting strange.

Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus in the saliva of infected animals.  If left untreated can cause death. Post exposure treatment is needed immediately. In order to ensure your safety, the Gloucester County Health Department recommends that all pets have their current rabies vaccinations.
