Moore County Animal Response Plan



In our region, rabies is a concern because of the occurrence of the virus in wild animals. Moore County Animal Operations is dedicated to informing the public about our upcoming rabies vaccination clinics of 2015.   We offer one year rabies vaccinations for dogs and cats for $5 each and Microchips for $15 each. The schedule is as follows:
Friday, July 24                     Cranes Creek Fire Department                                          2pm- 4pm
Wed, Aug 12                        A Dog’s Life, Olmstead Village                                 1pm-3pm

Sat, Sept 12                        Polo Field at the Harness Track, Pinehurst                   11am -3pm
State and local law requires all dogs and cats be vaccinated against rabies by 4 months of age. Any pet which comes in contact with a wild animal known to carry rabies must be revaccinated within 5 days of the exposure. Officers will be available at the clinics to answer questions about rabies control and prevention in addition to administering vaccinations.
