SEAVILLE – Upper Township will hold its first rabies clinic of the year from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26 at Shore Veterinarians, located on Hope Corson Road behind the Wawa on Rt. 50.

Shore Animal Control officers will be working with Dr. Nick Holland on the administering of vaccinations. The township offers these free rabies clinics each year as a courtesy to the residents.

All dogs in the township are required to be licensed and they must have a current rabies vaccination to receive the license. License issued on or after March 1 are considered late and will have late fees imposed in addition to the license fee.

On March 31, the late fee will be an additional $6. Every month thereafter will be an increase of $1 plus the license fee.

There have been several positive rabid raccoons in the county in the last few weeks, including one in Tuckahoe. Officials and animal control officers are urging residents to take advantage of the free clinic and also to keep pets indoors if at all possible.

For more information, call 390-9113.
