The Dog and Cat Shelter of Sheridan is holding their annual rabies clinic this week. The clinic will run from 8 A.M. to 1 P.M. each day this week through Saturday.
Shelter Director Cel Hope explains why pet owners should take advantage of the rabies clinic.
Hope said that a skunk that was picked up by animal control and brought to the shelter tested positive for rabies. The skunk was picked up by animal control after it had gotten into a confrontation with a dog in it's owner's backyard in Sheridan.
Hope said that thankfully the dog had had its rabies vaccination, thus keeping it safe from the rabies virus.
Back to the clinic itself, it will run through Saturday, but Hope says if you want to avoid the lines, you should try and stop in during the week before the final day on Saturday.
Hope said that animals need to be properly secured, for example, dogs on a leash and cats in some kind of a pet carrier. Once again the annual rabies clinic will run each day this week from 8 A.M. To 1 P.M. at the Kendrick Park band shell, with the final day being Saturday.
