Raleigh County Anti-Rabies Clinic still going strong

Living in West Virginia offers a variety of ways for your pet to enjoy the summer months outdoors, but due to rising statewide reports of rabies, the safety of letting your “best friend” run freely to cool off in the creek or chase that quick-footed squirrel has come into question.

For more than 30 years, the Raleigh County Assessor’s Office has been helping ensure pets’ health by hosting an Anti-Rabies Clinic, and this year it’s offering extended hours to meet the growing demand.

For your convenience, and in compliance with state law, anti-rabies clinics are planned for the vaccination of all dogs and cats. State law requires that a tax be paid on all dogs six months of age or older.

The clinic will be cash or check only, no credit or debit cards.

County dog and cat tags are $3; rabies shot is $8; distemper parvo virus shots for dogs is $20; and leukemia and distemper shots for cats is $15.
