Ocean City To Host A Free Rabies Clinic

Ocean City To Host A Free Rabies Clinic

By Josh Bakan, Patch Staff

Don’t start the year on a ruff patch. The City will host a free rabies clinic from 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 25 at the Ocean City Fire Department (550 Asbury Ave.).

State law requires anyone owning, keeping or harboring a dog of licensing age — seven months or older — or a dog with a set of permanent teeth to get an annual license and official metal tag on each dog owned.

To receive a dog license, the owner must first supply a rabies vaccination certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian. The fees for licenses are $7 for a dog that hasn’t been spayed or neutered and $10 for one who hasn’t. Licenses can be obtained at the Municipal Clerk’s Office (861 Asbury Ave.).

A late fee will occur after March 31 for an additional $4. Call (609) 525-9328 with any questions.
