North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are proud to announce that the Town’s Animal Shelter will be hosting a free rabies vaccination clinic in conjunction with the Nassau County Department of Health. The clinic will be held at the North Hempstead “Yes We Can” Community Center in Westbury on Wednesday, Oct. 3 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“Another year, another chance to get your four-legged friend vaccinated against rabies at no cost to the pet owner,” Bosworth said. “Vaccinating your cats, dogs and ferrets is one of the most important things you can do to ensure a happy healthy pet and one of the great services the Town’s Animal Shelter offers to the community.”

Rabies vaccines will be available to cats and dogs, as well as ferrets. You do not have to be a resident of Nassau County for your pet to receive a free rabies vaccine.

To participate in the rabies clinic your dogs must be licensed. North Hempstead officials will also offer on-the-spot dog licensing applications and renewals to North Hempstead residents.

Owners must bring their dogs on leashes and their cats and ferrets in carriers. Registration is required. Please call 311 or 516-869-6311 to make a reservation, or if you have any questions.

The North Hempstead “Yes We Can” Community Center is located at 141 Garden St. in Westbury.
