Mayor Brian P. Stack, in collaboration with the Board of Commissioners, announces the return of the annual Free Rabies Clinic for Union City’s dogs.

This community service event is scheduled for two Wednesdays, May 1 and May 8, 2024, at the NJRFR Firehouse locations on New York Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard, respectively. Each session will run from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM, offering a crucial health service for the local pet population.

The initiative, aimed at promoting public health and safety, will provide free rabies vaccines to dogs. Dr. Carlos Triana from Summit Animal Clinic will administer the vaccines.

The City of Union City emphasizes the importance of this initiative, stating, “Your pet is a family member. There is no cure for rabies, so vaccination is critical.”

In addition to the rabies vaccine, the event will offer annual pet licenses. Payments can be made via checks or money orders, payable to the City of Union City. It’s a requirement for all pets to be on a leash or in a carrier and accompanied by an adult who can place the animal on the examining table.

For any inquiries regarding the Free Rabies Clinic, residents are encouraged to contact the Office of the City Clerk at (201) 348-5731.
