Granville County Animal Control will provide free one- and three-year rabies vaccines from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Animal Shelter in Oxford. Pet owners must have proof of prior rabies vaccine, in the form of the paper certificate, to receive the three-year vaccine. A rabies tag will not be accepted as proof of a prior rabies vaccination.
North Carolina law (NCGS 130A-185) requires that all owned dogs, cats and ferrets be vaccinated against rabies by four months of age, and that rabies vaccinations be kept current. One shot is not enough. If unsure of when your pet was last vaccinated against the rabies virus, please contact your veterinarian.
Also on Feb. 16 during the same hours, the Humane Society of Granville County will also offer AKC microchips for dogs and cats for only $20. These microchips include a lifetime registration.
Please remember that cats must be in a carrier and dogs must be on a leash when coming in to receive these services. No appointments are necessary – animals will be vaccinated and/or microchipped on a first-come, first-served basis.
Funding for the rabies vaccines has been provided by donations to the Animal Shelter, with a matching amount provided by the Granville County Board of Commissioners.
The Granville County Animal Shelter is located at 5650 Cornwall Road in Oxford. For more information, contact the Shelter at 919-693-6749.
