Humane Society plans rabies clinics

The Humane Society of Washington County will hold four rabies clinics this spring and summer. The dates are May 30, July 18, Aug. 8 and Sept. 19 with a rain date of Sept. 26. The clinics will be held in conjunction with other events.

The May 30 clinic will be held during the shelter's Flealess Market. The Aug. 8 clinic will be held during the shelter's Dog Wash. Both will take place at the shelter at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The July 18 clinic will be held during Smithsburg Pride Days in Smithsburg from noon to 4 p.m. The Sept. 19 clinic will be held during the shelter's Bark in the Park at Doub's Woods Park in Hagerstown from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The rain date for that event will be Sept. 26 at Doub's Woods.

Maryland state law requires all dogs, cats and ferrets 4 months of age to have current, valid rabies vaccinations. Vaccinations must be given by a licensed Maryland veterinarian. Contact your veterinarian to schedule an appointment to inoculate your pets or attend clinics held by the Humane Society or the Washington County Health Department.
