Gun Club to help CART purchase pet oxygen masks at rabies clinic
Beaver Run Rod and Gun Club, 676 Stewart Creek Road, Lehighton, will host its Biannual Rabies Vaccination and Distemper Clinic on Sunday, April 25.
The well-coordinated event will be held under cover in the club pavilion.
Clinic hours will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Anyone can bring their pets, whether a member of the club or not.
Dr. Betsy Squires of Forest Inn Animal Hospital will be the veterinarian in charge.
Beaver Run Rod and Gun Club started the clinic because of the many members who hunt and have dogs that are exposed to the rabies danger in the wild. The club hosts rabies vaccination clinics in April and September at the Club.
Dogs and cats will be vaccinated for $10 each. All dogs must be leashed and cats must be caged (no exceptions).
Pennsylvania law requires all dogs and household cats be vaccinated at three months of age and that the vaccination be kept current throughout the animal's lifetime. If this is your pet's first vaccination, it must be repeated one year later to be effective.
The vaccine administered is good for one year. All mammals are susceptible to the rabies virus.
Proceeds from the event will help the Carbon County Animal Response Team (CART) campaign to provide pet oxygen masks to area emergency organizations.
