The Suffolk County SPCA will be holding our annual Rabies Vaccination Clinic as well as our fourth free pet food giveaway Sunday, September 20, 2020, from 9 am until 3 pm or until the supply runs out.
Rabies is a viral disease that is transmitted from infected mammals to humans and between animals. People can get rabies if they are exposed to the saliva or nervous tissue of a rabid animal, usually through a bite.
New York State and Suffolk County law requires that all dogs, cats, and ferrets be vaccinated against rabies. Vaccinating your pet not only provides protection for the animal but vaccinated pets act as a barrier to keep the rabies virus from spreading between wild animals and people.
RABIES IS PREVENTABLE!
