Herkimer, NY (WIBX) – To combat the rising number or rabies cases in New York, the Herkimer County Public Health Department is hosting a rabies clinic for cats, dogs and ferrets.

This Wednesday, from 3:30 until 5 p.m. at the Norway Community Center on Military Road, pets can receive a rabies shot for a $5 donation.

Dogs must be on a leash while cats and ferrets must be held in a carrier or pillowcase. Up to five pets may receive a one year shot. Those providing a vaccination history are eligible for a three year certificate.

The Health Department suggests all pets 3 months or older be vaccinated even if they stay indoors, to prevent the virus from spreading to other animals and people.

Through the end of April, nine animals in Herkimer County have been tested for rabies, with two testing positive. Oneida County has also seen several cases of rabies, with seven people this year undergoing post-exposure treatment.
