Free rabies clinic

After a recent confirmed case of rabies in New Hanover County, pet owners are reminded that rabies shots for their pets are required under state law as well as local ordinance. For residents who have limited ability to pay for the necessary vaccination, New Hanover County Animal Control and area veterinarians are teaming up to provide free and low cost rabies vaccinations. New Hanover County ACS and the Pre-Veterinary Medical Association at UNC-Wilmington will host a free rabies clinic at the New Hanover County Animal Control Shelter, 180 Division Drive, Saturday, April 19, from 1:00 until 3:00 p.m. Vaccinations for dogs, cats and ferrets will be available to all county residents. Donations are accepted. A number of private veterinarians will also provide rabies immunizations for a reduced price of $6 during the week of April 21-26. Domestic animal vaccination not only protects pets from rabies, but also serves as a barrier to human exposure to the disease. The following veterinarians will offer the low cost rabies vaccinations April 21-26:
  • Animal Medical Clinic
  • Atlantic Animal Hospital
  • Azalea Coast Animal Care
  • Capeside Animal Hospital
  • Carolina Beach Animal Hospital
