SCRIBA – The Oswego County Health Department will hold its last rabies clinic of the year from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, at the County Highway Garage, 31 Schaad Drive.

The health department suggests a $7 donation per animal to help cover the cost of the rabies clinics, but no one will be turned away.

Dogs should be leashed and cats and pet ferrets should be in a cage.

Any time a person or pet comes in physical contact with a bat or wild animal, especially a sick or suspicious-acting animal, the incident should be immediately reported to the County Health Department.
