Rabies clinics slated April 27 - May 4

The Smith County Extension of fice, area veterinarians and community volunteer groups will be conducting the annual Smith County dog and cat rabies vaccination clinics at 19 locations from April 27 through May 4. The clinics are conducted during the time of year when the spread of rabies is the most common.

In addition to Smith County, the cities of Lindale, Tyler, Whitehouse, and Winona require that all dogs and cats be vaccinated against rabies annually. Through the cooperation of local veterinarians and volunteers, individuals can get their pets vaccinated for $8 per animal.

Pet owners are encouraged to bring correct change to the clinic. It is also necessary that all pet owners provide volunteer workers with their current address and phone number so that the certificates of vaccination can be completed. These certificates will be good for one year.
