Rabies low-cost clinic to be held in Milford; official says he has seen rise in cases in area

By Register Staff
MILFORD — A rabies clinic will be held Feb. 25 at Milford Animal Control, 664 E. Broadway at the edge of Silver Sands State Park.
Animal Control Officer Rick George said he scheduled the clinic because he has seen an increase in animals that are not up-to-date on their inoculations.
Rabies inoculations are required by state law.
George said he has seen a number of domestic animals that have had to be quarantined after exposure to potentially rabid, wild animals. In fact, he said the shelter has a dog that must be quarantined for six months.
That means the animal has limited interaction with other animals and visitors. The dog, George said, “tangled with a rabid raccoon.’
Milford-Orange Animal Control, Dr. Stan Weill and Amity Animal Rescue Fund are holding the rabies clinic 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Inoculations are $15. Bring proof of rabies shots to receive a three-year booster. Animals must be on a leash or secured in carriers. Cash or checks. No credit cards accepted.
