CHARLOTTE, NC – CMPD Animal Care and Control provides free rabies vaccines for pets living in Mecklenburg County.

Free vaccination is available only on the second Saturday of each month at Animal Care & Control, 8315 Byrum Dr, Charlotte. Animal Care & Control will only give 1-year rabies shots in November, December, and January. Pet owners need to show proof that they are the residents of Mecklenburg County.

Vaccination is scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Pet owners will get the queue number to get the shots and should not come later than 10:45 a.m. Those who come later will then be referred to the next vaccination schedule.

To be able to get the shot, pets should be at least 4 months of age. Dogs need to be leashed and cats need to be carried inside the carriers. Pet owners are not allowed to use retractable leashes and chains as collars. Pet owners can check the full instruction and requirements for the free rabies vaccination at this website.
