What You Need to Know

Clinics are first come, first served (no appointment required) and begin promptly at the scheduled time.

Vaccinations are available for cats and dogs only.

Animals as young as 6 weeks of age may receive a distemper vaccine.

Animals must be 12 weeks of age or older to receive a rabies vaccine.

If an animal has had a previous rabies vaccination, the most recent rabies certificate with a veterinarian’s signature MUST be brought the clinic in order to receive a 3-year rabies vaccine. NO exceptions, and NO certificates will be issued after the clinic.

No physical exams are performed due to the high-volume of animals attending each clinic.

Cats must be in hard plastic or cardboard carriers, dogs must be wearing a collar and leash (retractable leashes not permitted).

If your dog requires a muzzle to be vaccinated, owners should bring animal’s own properly fitting muzzle to clinic (owners must be able to put muzzle on animal).

Accepted forms of payment: Cash or Check ONLY. Checks should be made payable to DHA or Delaware Humane Association.

Please bring driver’s license or ID with current name and address, as this will expedite the completion of paperwork.

Rabies Prevention Tips

Rabies among household pets may be avoided by taking the following precautions:

  • Keep your pets away from stray animals and wildlife by confining them to your own lawn and by walking them on a leash at all times when leaving your property.

  • Keep trash in tightly closed trash cans so as not to attract stray or wild animals.

  • Vaccinating all dogs and cats against rabies on a regular basis–as prescribed by your veterinarian–is required by law.
