Rabies Vaccination Clinics

To remain properly immunized, a dog or cat must receive two rabies vaccinations one year apart, then one vaccination every three years thereafter.

North Carolina Law: "The owner of every dog and cat over four months of age shall have the animal vaccinated against rabies." In Cumberland County, the owners of dog and cats which have not been vaccinated in accordance with this law are subject to a civil penalty in the amount of $100.

For more information, please call Cumberland County Animal Services Department at 910-321-6851 or Environmental Health Division, Cumberland County Health Department at 910-433-3660.
