The Susquehanna SPCA is teaming up with the Otsego County Department of Health to offer free rabies vaccinations for cats, dogs and ferrets on Wednesdays from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm (until May 10) and again on Thursdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm (until further notice) at the Susquehanna Animal Shelter, just outside of Cooperstown on Rt. 28.

Each appointment will be 30 minutes to ensure social distancing. Typically, The Otsego County Department of Health would hold free rabies clinics at a different location in the county each month but the clinics had to be suspended due to social distancing requirements.

The shelter requires pet owners to bring proof of a prior rabies vaccination in order to receive a 3 year vaccine. Dogs must be on a leash, and cats/ferrets must be in carriers or a pillow case for everyone's safety.

To register for one of these free clinics, call the Susquehanna SPCA at 607-547-8111, extension 108.
