- Does my pet have to be vaccinated for rabies?
Yes. Maryland law and regulation require all dogs, cats and ferrets age 4 months and older must be adequately vaccinated against rabies. Rabies shots typically expire after one to three years depending on the animal’s age and the type of vaccine used.
- Where can I get a rabies vaccination for my pet?
Rabies vaccinations are available through area veterinary offices. Worcester County Health Department and Animal Control partner to provide semi-annual rabies clinics at a cost of only $5 per pet. Dates, times and locations will be announced to the public and media.
- Do both cats and dogs have to be licensed?
Yes. Worcester County law requires that any dog or cat older than 4 months must be licensed in the county.
- How do I license my cat or dog?
Many licensed veterinarians and Animal Control have the authority to issue a dog or cat license and issue the license tag. Contact your vet or Worcester County Animal Control for more information at 410-632-1340.
- Do I have to renew the dog or cat license?
Licenses are only valid while the pet’s rabies vaccination is valid. Before a license is issued, the pet owner must prove that the dog or cat has been vaccinated against rabies and that the vaccination is still effective.
- What happens if I lose the license tag?
You present your pet’s rabies vaccination certificate to Animal Control to receive a new license.
