Why Immunize?

It is important for all pet owners to be sure their dogs and cats have protection against rabies. Some Montgomery Township pets have had to undergo quarantine because they were attacked by rabid wildlife (mostly raccoons). All pets that were currently vaccinated remained healthy during their ten-day home quarantine period.

The owners of pets that were not vaccinated at the time they were exposed to rabid wildlife had to choose to either euthanize their pet or quarantine their pet for a six-month period. Quarantine periods are set by New Jersey State Law.
