RAYNE VETERINARIAN TO OFFER LOW-COST RABIES VACCINATIONS
In an effort to help pet owners in the Rayne area, Dr. Jim Rumore will offer low-cost rabies vaccinations during a one day clinic at his office, Acadiana Animal Clinic, located at 284 Lama Road in Rayne. The vaccinations will be offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5, at a cost of $5 per vaccination.
Rayne Police Chief Carroll Stelly would like to take this opportunity to remind Rayne pet owners that they must have their pets immunized for rabies yearly.
LOUISIANA LAW REQUIRES: "The owners of any dog or other animal of the canine species or cat or other animal of the feline species over the age of three months shall, on or before April 1 of each year, cause such animal to be immunized or vaccinated against rabies by a duly licensed veterinarian, who shall, at the time of such immunization, furnish such owner with a certificate, signed by such veterinarian, showing the date of immunization, the name and description of the animal, and the name and address of the owner and shall furnish the owner with a metal tag, which shall be attached to the animal's collar and shall be numbered and shall indicate the calendar year during which such inoculation has been made. The owner shall keep and maintain such metal tag on the animal at all times."
