A Cambridge rabies vaccination clinic (for dogs only) and annual dog licensing for Cambridge residents will be held behind the Department of Public Works. This event is open to all.

Proof of rabies vaccination certificate with an expiration date or copy of medical records with rabies expiration date will help determine if dogs are eligible for a three year shot instead of a one year shot, without the proof.
