Rabies Clinic Today

With January being the time to license your dog, it's also time to make sure your dogs - and cats - are up-to-date on their rabies vaccinations.

Hillsborough Township is having a free rabies vaccination clinic for dogs and cats today, Saturday, January 19th, from 10 a.m. until noon at the Hillsborough Public Works Garage, 21 East Mountain Road, next to the YMCA.

Cats should be in a secure carrier and dogs must be leashed.

If you have never been to one of these popular clinics, here are a few hints:

It will be cold...its January. Dress warmly; you may have to stand in line for a while.

If your pets are not used to being outside or are sickly or elderly...or aggressive toward other animals or strangers, bring an extra family member or friend to stay in the car with your pet until it gets to be near your turn.

Make your life easier, bring along one person per dog to hold them while each dog gets its shot. Cat carriers can be awkward, so it will make your life easier if you allot one person per cat carrier.

Have your dog leashed. This seems to be common sense, but there is always someone...

Cats are usually done inside the old municipal building. With all the activity and other dogs and cats it will be best for your cats if they are in a carrier.
If you miss this clinic, there is another one next Saturday, January 26, 2013, in Montgomery Township at their Public Works building on Harlingen Road, Belle Mead.
9am to 10:30am for dogs
10:30am to 12noon for cats
