Cats and dogs over 4 months of age must be vaccinated against rabies once a year. Three-year vaccinations are also available. You will receive a rabies vaccination certificate and a rabies tag from your veterinarian. This is your rabies registration. Keep your certificate in a safe place. It is your proof of rabies vaccination status. Attach the tag to your pet's collar for identification and proof of vaccination. Your pet must wear the tag.
Citations for failure to vaccinate your pet, register your pet, or display your pet's rabies tag require a court appearance. Fines start at $75.
Additional Animal Vaccines
There are also rabies vaccines approved for ferrets, horses, swine, sheep, and cattle. While not required by law, they could save your pet's life.
