Campbell County Animal Control will hold a drive-through Rabies Clinic on Saturday, Oct. 28, 8 – 10 a.m. in the parking lot area of Dodd’s Farm Supply at 1103 Lynchburg Avenue, Brookneal.
The rabies vaccine will be given at a cost of $5 each. Dogs and cats can be vaccinated. You do not have to be a resident of Campbell County to participate.
Lines will form in the large parking lot south of Dodd’s. Forms will be passed out for you to fill out in your vehicle. You should keep your dogs and cats in your vehicle. The line will move to a computer area where you will pay for services, then to an area where a veterinarian will give the vaccinations to the animals in the vehicle.
Anyone who is in line before 10 a.m. will be served.
All dogs and cats in Campbell County are required to be vaccinated for rabies starting at four months of age. An animal’s first rabies shot is good for one year. Subsequent rabies vaccinations given close to expiration date are good for three years.
If your animal has had a previous rabies vaccination, please bring the old certificate for proof. You must have proof of prior vaccination to get the three-year vaccination.
It is important to save your copy of the vaccination certificate.
In order to purchase a dog license in Campbell County, you are required to present a current rabies certificate to the Campbell County Treasurer. Dog licenses are required by the end of January for the current year. On the day of the Rabies Clinic, envelopes will be available for Campbell County residents to put a check and your copy of the rabies certificate in. Animal Control will deliver the envelopes to the Treasurer for you. The Treasurer will then mail your license and your rabies certificate to you.
