Free rabies clinic for dogs set for Oct. 27

— West Milford Township will hold its annual free rabies clinic for dogs only on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the town DPW Garage, Lycosky Drive, West Milford.
The State of New Jersey now recommends that dogs be re-vaccinated every two years rather than the previous three year requirement. This will ensure that there is no lapse in your pet’s protection against this deadly disease. West Milford Township is in a rabies enzootic area, so it is important to make sure that all pets are vaccinated.
A current rabies certificate is a pre-requisite for obtaining a dog license. No rabies shot means no license. A canvas will be held throughout the township to determine that dogs residing in our West Milford are vaccinated and licensed.
In order to obtain a 2013 license, all dogs’s rabies vaccinations must be good at least until Oct. 24, 2013.
Mark your calendar. There will be no make-up date.
