The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department will be holding their annual rabies clinic May 9.

Owners can get shots for their dogs or cats for $3 from 6:00pm-9:00pm at the Third Street Fire Station, 219 E. Third St.

State law requires all dogs, cats, and ferrets have an up-to-date rabies vaccination.

Rabies is a virus that is transmitted from animals to humans through saliva, usually from a bite.

Luke Mathis, one of the organizers says the goal of the event is to improve public health by offering an opportunity to protect pets and people from the disease.

Lexington-Fayette Animal Care and Control will also be at the clinic selling licenses for $8 if the animal has been spayed or neutered and $40 without proof of alteration.

For more information, you can call the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department's Division of Environmental Health at (859) 231-9791, or visit their Facebook page.
