Bring your cats, dogs, and ferrets to the Danby Fire Station (1780 Danby Rd., Ithaca) on Wednesday, May 3 (6pm-8pm) for free rabies vaccinations. Pre-registration for appointments is encouraged.
New York State requires all cats, dogs, and ferrets to have their first rabies vaccination between 3 and 4 months of age. TCWH’s Environmental Health Division holds rabies clinics throughout the year to ensure you are able to keep your pets protected.
Ferrets must be vaccinated yearly after the initial vaccine. Cats may receive either a 1-year or 3-year vaccine after the initial vaccine depending on the type of rabies vaccine given and whether proof of previous vaccination is available. Dogs receive a 3-year vaccine after the initial vaccine.
Pre-register online for an appointment slot or dial 2-1-1 for assistance. Please contact Environmental Health at: 607-274-6688 with questions regarding the upcoming clinics.
