NASHVILLE — Nash County Animal Control will host a low-cost rabies vaccination clinic from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday. 

Pet owners can bring their cats, dogs and ferrets.

The clinic will be held at the Nash County Animal Shelter’s front parking lot at 951 N. First St. Extension, Nashville. 

Pets must be on a leash or in separate carriers and owners are asked to use their best judgment to determine whether a pet needs to be muzzled or kept at a distance from people and other animals. Pets must remain in their owner’s vehicle until they’re called. Animals must be four months or older.

Animal control staff will provide the one-year rabies vaccines. After receiving the one-year vaccination, pets are eligible for a 3-year vaccination next year. A three-year vaccination is available from participating veterinarians with proof of a current one-year vaccination. 

There is no limit on the number of pets per family. Animal control staff will ask for each pet’s weight, age and breed before issuing a vaccine certificate and tag.

The cost is $5 per animal and only cash will be accepted.
