Rabies Vaccination Program Gets More Money in Somerset County
There will be money in Somerset County’s 2014 budget for free rabies vaccination clinics held twice a year.
The County Commissioners agreed to add over $12-hundred to the Animal control budget after health officials told them several months ago about the need for better control of rabies among feral cats.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the health department now holds the clinics in the spring and the fall charging a $6 fee per animal.
James Henderson head of Animal Control said his agency sees several wild rabid animals a month.
