Spring Rabies Clinics for Pets

Wayne County Public Health Service in cooperation with Lyons Veterinary Clinic invites you to bring your pets to our Winter Rabies Vaccination Clinic for Pets. All dogs, cats and domestic ferrets over the age of 3 months are required by law to be vaccinated against rabies.
Many well meaning individuals routinely feed and handle stray animals, especially cats. This can be a dangerous past time because you do not know the animals health or vaccination history. You could be putting yourself, your family and other animals, at risk for exposure to rabies or other diseases. You should also be aware that if you harbor or feed stray animals, that you are responsible for them. To protect yourself, your family, and your community, vaccinate all the animals you care for against this potentially fatal disease.
All dogs brought to the rabies clinic must be leashed. All cats/ferrets must be confined to a secure carrier to prevent injuries and escapes. A $5.00 donation is requested to help defray the cost of the clinics, but no pet will be turned away due to the inability to donate.
