MORE THAN 5 DOZEN PETS PROTECTED THROUGH RITCHIE RABIES CLINIC

 

More than 5 dozen pets were protected from the deadly rabies virus through a free clinic hosted by State Senator Patty Ritchie Thursday in Heuvelton. 

The clinic, which was the first of 6 being hosted in St. Lawrence and Jefferson Counties, was made possible through a special grant secured by Senator Ritchie.  So far this year, St. Lawrence County has had 23 confirmed cases of rabies and Jefferson County has had five confirmed cases.

The no-cost clinics are being hosted in conjunction with St. Lawrence County Public Health and Jefferson County Public Health.
