The Henrico County Police Division will provide rabies vaccines for dogs and cats from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 17 at the Henrico County Government Center, 4301 E. Parham Road.
Pet owners must register and pay at the cashier’s office in the Administration Building before seeing a veterinarian on the first level of the adjacent parking deck.
Each vaccine costs $10 and must be paid in cash. A rabies tag and certificate of inoculation are included. Pets from all localities are welcome. Cats must be in carriers.
Under Virginia law, dogs and cats 4 months of age and older must be vaccinated for rabies.
Henrico dog licenses will be available for $10. Under an ordinance approved by the Board of Supervisors in November, dog licenses now are valid for the life of the animal as long as the owner lives in Henrico and its rabies vaccinations are kept current. Henrico previously offered one- and three-year licenses.
Officers will be available to discuss license and vaccination requirements. For information, call the Animal Protection Unit at (804) 727-8801.
