(Clayton, NJ) The Gloucester County Board of Chosen  Freeholders and the Gloucester County Animal Shelter encourage residents to  take advantage of an added date for the free rabies clinic being offered on  Saturday, Nov. 2 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. for cats and 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for  dogs at the Gloucester County Government Services Building located at 1200  North Delsea Drive in Clayton.  

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, "Rabies cases  in the wild animal population within our county have been high and it makes it  that much more important that pets are protected.  We want our residents  to take advantage of the free rabies clinics we offer in order to ensure the  safety of their animals should they ever come in contact with infected  animals."  

Freeholder Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco, liaison to the  Gloucester County Animal Shelter said, “Vaccinating our pets is just as  important as vaccinating ourselves. By keeping your pet up to date on its  vaccines, you can help protect your pet and other animals around your pet from  diseases.”
