Citizens should keep their animals in their vehicle. A veterinarian will give the

vaccinations to the animals in the vehicle. Lines will form in the large parking lot south of Long's Farm Supply. Due to Covid, please bring a pen and/or clipboard to write on, as these items will not be circulated.

All dogs and cats in Campbell County are required to be vaccinated for rabies starting at four months of age. An animal’s first rabies shot is good for one year. Subsequent rabies vaccinations given close to expiration date are good for three years. If your animal has had a previous rabies vaccination, please bring the old certificate for proof. You must have proof of prior vaccination to get the three-year vaccination.

On the day of the Rabies Clinic, rabies certificates will not be distributed. Animal Control will mail your certificate.

It is important to save your copy of the vaccination certificate. In order to purchase a dog license in Campbell County, you are required to present a current rabies certificate to the Campbell County Treasurer. Dog licenses are required by the end of January for the current year.
