Campbell County Animal Control will hold a drive-through rabies clinic on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 8 – 10 a.m., in the parking lot area of Dodd’s Farm Supply at 1103 Lynchburg Ave. in 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 of vehicles will form in the large parking lot south of Dodd’s. Forms will be passed out for you to fill out in your vehicle. Then you will move forward in line in your vehicle to pay for the services, then forward to the vaccination area. You should keep your dogs and cats in your vehicle. A veterinarian will give the vaccinations to the animals in the vehicle.
Animal Control staff will strive to serve everyone as quickly as possible. 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. The first rabies shot is good for one year. Subsequent rabies vaccinations given close to the expiration date are good for three years.
If your animal has received a rabies vaccination in the past, bring the old certificate for proof. It is important to save your copy of the certificate.
To purchase a license for your dog, you are required to present a current rabies certificate to the county treasurer. If you live in Campbell County, Animal Control will have available envelopes for you to put a check and your copy of the rabies certificate in. Animal Control will deliver the envelopes to the Campbell County Treasurer’s Office on Monday, September 26. The treasurer will then mail you your county dog license and return your rabies certificate to you.
