All dogs and cats must be on a leash or in an animal carrier and must be 12 weeks or older to receive the vaccine. Owners should bring proof of the pet’s current rabies vaccination if requesting a three year booster; otherwise, pets will receive the one year vaccination. Newport News residents can purchase 2020 animal licenses at the clinic, and owners must bring proof of sterilization if purchasing a license for a spayed or neutered pet. Materials on how to prepare pets for disasters and other emergencies will also be available along with other pet resources.
