The Calvert County Sheriffâ€™s Office Animal Control Unit wants to remind pet owners that all dogs and cats over the age of 4 months are required by state law to have a rabies vaccination administered to them.
Also, all dogs and cats over the age of 6 months are required by county ordinance to have a valid pet license.
Failure to have current rabies vaccinations and/or a county pet license may result in a fine starting at $50.
Pet licenses will be sold at the FREE RABIES CLINICS on April 12 at the Prince Frederick Firehouse Company 2 and April 25 at the Chesapeake Ranch Estates Clubhouse.
Both free clinics will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. You can also purchase county pet licenses at all county veterinarian offices, local Animal Welfare groups and the Sheriffâ€™s Office.
Cost of county pet licenses are $5.00 for spayed/neutered pets and $15 if they have not been spayed/neutered. The county pet license is valid for one year from date of purchase.
