Rabies Clinic to Be Held This Saturday
Another reliable sign of spring rolls around this weekend. The Groton session of the Nashoba Associated Boards of Health annual rabies clinic for dogs and cats is scheduled for this Saturday, April 4, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Groton Central Fire Station, 45 Farmer's Row.
Dr. Susan Horowitz, a Groton Board of Health commissioner and veterinarian, will be giving the $15 shots.
Both dogs and cats are required by state law to be vaccinated, and dogs must be vaccinated in order to be licensed by the town.
All dogs must be on leash, and cats should be in carriers, Horowitz said. She asked that cats be brought during the last 15 minutes or so of the session.
If a dog was vaccinated either for the first time last year, or for a subsequent time three years ago, it will receive a three-year inoculation. Dogs being vaccinated for the first time, or that have a gap in their vaccination history, receive a one-year shot.
