Dog Days In May

By  | 

Officials in Washington County are urging pet owners to keep their four-legged friends free of rabies.

It's all part of the Dog Days in May Saturday afternoon.

Doctor Bea Schooley was there giving cats and dogs the rabies vaccine and microchips.

The humane society took donations of any kind for the shelter.

People got to see a trained police dog showcase some tricks on how he can find drugs while on scene.

Washington County Deputy Kelly McGilton was also there to answer questions about the laws pet owners must abide.

"As we think about our animals, they're part of our families and it's important for us to make sure that our animals get regular check-ups, they get vaccinated against diseases that are common to dogs and cats," says Belpre Heights United Methodist Church Pastor, Rod Brower.
