PET CARE REMINDERS

Have your pet vaccinated against rabies!  Orange County  authorities say that, If bitten by a rabid animal, unvaccinated pets could be required to be quarantined for six months or be euthanized. Make sure that your pets' vaccinations are up-to-date!  Click here for Rabies Clinics info.



Before you adopt a dog or puppy
:  Remember that dogs need plenty of exercise, play time, companionship, and obedience training.

 

Choose a breed of dog that will fit your home and space.  Larger breeds need a lot of space, while smaller dogs may be better if space is limited.

 

For safety, dogs need a fenced yard; identification tag or tatoo identification, and a leash.  Pets should wear a personal ID tag with their owners' name, address and phone number so that lost pets may be returned to their homes.

 

Dogs and cats need annual vaccinations, heartworm medicine, and regular checkups; flea and tick treatment.  NC law requires all dogs and cats over 4 months of age to be vaccinated against rabies.

 

Many North Carolina counties, including Orange County, require dogs to be licensed.  Check with your county about licensing requirements.
