Pet owners: a low-cost rabies vaccination clinic is on the way this Thursday in Lexington.
Vaccines usually cost about $20.00. These will cost $3.00.
Cats have to be in carriers, and dogs have to be on leashes.
The clinic is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on May 3 at the Third Street fire station at 219 East Third Street. Kentucky state law requires that all dogs, cats and ferrets maintain a current rabies vaccination.
