Scheduled Rabies Clinics

Release Date: November 30, 2022
Rabies Clinic Schedule. Note: Vaccinate only healthy cats and dogs at clinics. Ferrets, rabbits, wolf-hybrids, and other animals will NOT be vaccinated at clinics. Contact your veterinarian for instructions on vaccination of these animals.

Due to unforeseen circumstances there is a current shortage of rabies vaccines for municipal clinics at this time.

Other options for rabies vaccinations include: a veterinary hospital, a clinic in another town/municipality, or a participating pet supply store.  You will need to contact each place for a schedule, they are not random walk-in establishments.  If you choose any of these options, please make sure to retain your rabies certificate.  This is what you will need to license your pet.

As a pet owner you are still responsible for licensing your pet for 2022 even if a clinic is unavailable.   To avoid a late fee, this typically needs to be done by the end of January.

It is strongly advised that you contact the municipality where you live to find out their due dates, fees, and requirements.

You can find a link to each municipality on the Sussex County Website (  Once on the website go to the “Municipalities” tab and locate your town for a phone number.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause
