OAKLAND — The town will provide free rabies vaccinations to local dogs and cats during a special clinic to run from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, December 6, at the Oakland Fire Station, at 11 Fairfield St.

Town Clerk Janice Porter said veterinarian Peter Walsh, who has a practice in Fairfield but lives in Oakland, has volunteered his time to administer the vaccinations.

The Oakland Lions Club has agreed to donate $500 to pay for the vaccinations.

Porter said town staffers will be available to issue residents their 2015 dog licenses at a cost of $6 for spayed or neutered dogs and $11 for unaltered dogs.

Dogs must be licensed by Jan. 31 to avoid the automatic $25 late fee, Porter said.

The clinic is open to non-Oakland residents for a fee of $12. Porter said the town vaccinated 91 dogs and cats last year during the annual clinic, including 14 nonresident pets.
