MEMPHIS, TN – The annual Rabies Drive sponsored by the Shelby County Health Department’s Vector Control Program will be held Saturday, April 20, and Saturday, April 27, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.  Residents are encouraged to bring their dogs and cats to either location listed below to receive rabies vaccinations:

 

 


  • Benjamin Hooks Central Library

3030 Poplar Avenue

 

  • Mullins Station Parking Lot (west)

1075 Mullins Station Road

 

 


Although the majority of rabies cases occur in wildlife, most humans will need the rabies vaccine after being exposed to infected domestic animals.  It is affordable to vaccinate pets before they are exposed to animals carrying the rabies virus. 

 

“The Rabies Vaccination drive is an excellent time to safely vaccinate your pets without paying additional administrative costs. The vaccination will protect your pet from an avoidable illness, as well as your family,” said Daniel Sprenger, Ph. D., manager of Vector Control.

 

The rabies tag, required by law, varies depending on the city of residence.
