Does your pet need its rabies vaccine? Here’s how to get one for free

If your animal needs a rabies vaccination soon, you’re in luck.

Several agencies have partnered to provide a free rabies clinic for area animals from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 10, according to a Virginia Department of Health news release.

The clinic will be at the Magruder Elementary School parking lot, 700 Penniman Road in Williamsburg.

The partnership involves the Peninsula Medical Reserve Corps, Virginia Department of Health, York County Animal Services and James City County Animal Services, according to the news release.

No appointment is necessary.

All dogs and cats must be on a leash or in a pet carrier and at least 12 weeks old.

The vaccine is available while supplies last.

James City County dog licenses will also be for sale at the clinic. Licenses cost $5 for a one-year tag for a fixed animal.

The licenses cost slightly more if an animal hasn’t been spayed or neutered.

Additional information is available on the James City County website.
