NEW CITY, NY, – Rockland County Executive Ed Day and County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert today announced that free rabies shots (vaccinations) are available for cats, dogs, and ferrets on Sunday, October 4, 2020, from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. at the Robert Yeager Health Complex, 50 Sanatorium Road in Pomona (Enter Complex at Building F). No appointment is needed. The shots are free; however, a $5 donation per animal will help defray our costs.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, all attendees must limit the number of passengers and remain in the vehicle. In order for your pet to receive a vaccine, everyone in the vehicle must wear a mask.
“Animal rabies continues to be a serious public health problem in Rockland County. We remind all residents to make sure that their animals are immunized against rabies and that the vaccinations are kept up to date,” said Dr. Ruppert.
To get a free rabies shot:
Your dog, cat or ferret must be healthy.
Your pet must be older than three months.
Your dogs must be on a leash.
Your cats and ferrets must be on a leash or in a top-opening container.
New York State law requires that all dogs, cats, and domesticated ferrets be vaccinated against rabies by four months of age. Owners can be fined up to $250 if they fail to get their pets vaccinated and keep them up-to-date. All animal bites or contacts with animals suspected of having rabies must be reported to the Rockland County Health Department at (845) 364-2656. After hours, callers should contact (845) 364-8600.
