Original story:

NORFOLK — Norfolk Department of Public Health will be conducting a low-cost rabies clinic for dogs and cats on Saturday.

The clinic will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in in the parking lot at the main Norfolk Health Center, 830 Southampton Ave. — at the intersection of Brambleton and Colley avenues.

The cost is $5 per animal, cash only and while supplies last, according to a news release from the city.

All animals must be at least 12 weeks old. Cats must be in carriers and dogs must be on leashes.  A previous rabies certificate is required for the 3-year vaccine.

For animals without a certificate, a 1-year vaccine will be administered.

Officials said this year the Norfolk Commissioner of Revenue’s office will assist residents in getting their 2018 pet license.

Free parking is available around the building and in the adjacent parking lot No.6.
