RUSTBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Campbell County Animal Control will hold a drive-thru rabies clinic on Saturday, March 27 from 10 a.m. until noon.

The rabies clinic will be held at Long’s Farm Supply, located at 1103 Lynchburg Avenue in Brookneal.

The rabies vaccine will be given at a cost of $10 each by cash or check made payable to Corban Veterinary Services only. Dogs and cats can be vaccinated.

You do not have to be a resident of Campbell County to participate.

During the rabies clinic, a veterinarian will give the vaccinations to the animals in the vehicle. Lines will form in the large parking lot south of Long’s Farm Supply.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, event organizers are asking participants to bring a pen and/or clipboard to write on, as these items will not be circulated. 

You can obtain a printed form in advance from Long’s Farm Supply, download it here: Brookneal Rabies Clinic Vaccination Consent Form, or by emailing jbdavid@campbellcountyva.gov to request one.

All dogs and cats in Campbell County are required to be vaccinated for rabies starting at four months of age. An animal’s first rabies shot is good for one year. Subsequent rabies vaccinations given close to expiration date are good for three years. If your animal has had a previous rabies vaccination, please bring the old certificate for proof. You must have proof of prior vaccination to get the three-year vaccination.

On the day of the rabies clinic, rabies certificates will not be distributed; Animal Control will mail out certificates.

Campbell County Animal Control would like to remind residents that it is important to save your copy of the vaccination certificate. In order to purchase a dog license in Campbell County, you are required to present a current rabies certificate to the Campbell County Treasurer. Dog licenses are required by the end of January for the current year.
