The Springfield Township Health Department will hold its annual free Rabies Clinic for dogs and cats of Springfield residents only on Saturday November 10, 2012, from 9 to 11 a.m., at the Springfield Township Public Works Building at 1258 Church Road.
Springfield Township would like to thank Dr. Beth Henry V.M.D. for volunteering her time to administer the rabies vaccine. Dr. Henry graduated from the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine in 1994 and is currently part of the veterinary team at Stoney Creek Veterinary Hospital at 701 Kedron Avenue Morton, PA (610) 328-3600.
Dogs must be on leashes and cats must be transported in some type of pet carrier. All residents are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this free service for both their pets' and family members' protection. Springfield Township is committed to providing services that protect the health and safety of our residents.
Pennsylvania requires all dogs and cats over 3 months of age to be vaccinated for rabies. There is no exemption from vaccination for indoor-only animals. All dogs three months or older are required to obtain a Pennsylvania dog license.
