Union County, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders reminds residents to have dogs, cats and other pets vaccinated against rabies.
The vaccine is important even for pets that are normally leashed or kept indoors, because it provides protection in case of accidental contact with a rabies carrier.
Rabies vaccination is especially important for cats, which are more likely to roam outdoors.
Union County residents are advised to check with their veterinarian to get a rabies shot for their pet, or to get more information about the vaccine.
