The Charles County Animal Control and the Charles County Department of Health are sponsoring a free rabies clinic on Wednesday, Oct. 13, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Department of Emergency Service (10425 Audie Lane, La Plata). The Tri-County Animal Shelter in Hughesville will close at 2 p.m. for this event.
All attendees and pets must remain in their vehicles until directed otherwise. Dogs are required to be on a leash and cats and ferrets must be in a carrier. Protect the ones you love by ensuring your pets have the proper vaccinations. Maryland law requires all dogs, cats, and ferrets to be vaccinated for rabies.
