Beaver Run Rod and Gun Club plans Spring rabies vaccination clinic
Beaver Run Rod and Gun Club, 676 Stewart Creek Road, Lehighton, will host its Spring Rabies Vaccination Clinic on Sunday, May 1, on the Club grounds.
Clinic hours will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Carbon County Animal Response Team to help the group purchase oxygen masks for animals.
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 in the wild and exposed to the dangers of rabies. The club hosts rabies vaccination clinics in April and September at the Club.
Dogs and cats will be vaccinated for $10 each. Distemper shots will be $15. 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 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.
