Hamilton Holds Free Rabies Clinic for Residents’ Dogs and Cats on Wednesday, June 6th 

 

 

Mayor Kelly Yaede is inviting residents to take advantage of Hamilton’s upcoming free rabies immunization for their dogs and cats – which is the town’s second to last clinic scheduled for 2018.

 

Hamilton Township will hold its next free rabies immunization on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, at the McManimon Township Building located at 320 Scully Avenue, between the hours of 5 PM and 7 PM.  

 

Note for Directions: The McManimon Building at 320 Scully Avenue is located off of Olden Avenue, between Liberty Street and Cedar Lane, opposite the Olden Pharmacy.

 

Following the June 6th clinic, Hamilton Township will hold its final rabies clinic of the year on September 12, 2018.  

 

As a courtesy, Hamilton’s rabies clinics are open to pets of Township residents only (proof of residency is required), and are free of charge. 

 

For residents utilizing this Township service, all dogs must be leashed.  As a safety precaution, dogs should be muzzled, if necessary.  All cats must arrive in a carrier.

 

In response to the rabies epidemic in our wildlife, the New Jersey Department of Health Policy requires the immunization of dogs every 2 years, even if the inoculation is good for a 3 year period.

 

“This is a great program that our Department of Health provides throughout the year to protect our pets, as well as public health,” explains Mayor Kelly Yaede. “I would encourage any of our local dog or cat owners, who still need a rabies inoculation for their pet, to take advantage of one of our remaining free clinics of the year.”
