The Harford County Health Department is partnering with 4 Paws Spa and Training Center, Inc. to offer a low cost rabies vaccination clinic in support of World Rabies Day.
World Rabies Day, recognized each September, is a global health observance which began in 2007 to raise awareness about rabies and bring together partners to enhance prevention and control efforts worldwide. As stated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “While rabies is a 100% preventable disease, more than 59,000 people die from the disease around the world each year. World Rabies Day is an opportunity to reflect on our efforts to control this deadly disease and remind ourselves that the fight is not yet over.”
In recognition of this observance, the Harford County Health Department will conduct a clinic on Saturday, September 25th from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the 4 Paws Spa and Training Center located at 121-A Industry Lane in Forest Hill. Veterinarians will vaccinate dogs, cats, and ferrets for the low cost of $8.00 per animal. Advance on-line registration is required. Please register each animal at www.harfordcountyhealth.com/2021-world-rabies-day-rabies-vaccination-clinics/.
Dan Driscoll, Program Manager of the Community Hygiene Program, states: “We are happy to continue this important partnership with 4 Paws Spa and Training Center and its owner, Robin Greenwood. Without their cooperation and support, this very successful annual event would not be possible.”
