THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT MADE OUR 2022 LOW-COST CLINICS SUCCESSFUL! WE WILL UPDATE THIS PAGE WITH MORE INFORMATION AS SOON AS WE ARE ABLE TO HOST ANOTHER CLINIC!
Orange County’s Animal Services Department schedules low-cost rabies clinics annually. Rabies vaccinations are very important as North Carolina continues to be affected by the epidemic of "eastern raccoon rabies" that began in the latter half of the 1990s.
The incidence of rabies among a host species increases and decreases over a period of time. For more information on rabies facts and figures for Orange County and other areas in NC, visit NC Department of Health & Human Services.
Rabies is a fatal virus and Orange County residents are urged to remain vigilant. Pet owners must be sure that dogs, cats, and ferrets are currently vaccinated against rabies and also that they immediately receive a booster shot if there is any possible exposure to rabies or a rabies vector.
