Maryland law requires all dogs, cats, and ferrets are vaccinated for rabies. Protect your furry friends, bring your pet to a free rabies clinic Sunday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to noon at the La Plata Volunteer Fire Department (911 Washington Avenue, La Plata). Dog and cat licenses will be available for purchase. The fee for a pet license is $5 if your animal is altered and $25 if your animal is not altered. All dogs must be leashed and all cats and ferrets must be contained in a carrier.
The Charles County Animal Response Team (CART) volunteers, Charles County Animal Control, and the Charles County Department of Health are sponsoring the clinic.
