STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – Mahoning County Public Health is offering a low-cost rabies vaccination clinic in Struthers on Saturday.

In Mahoning County, a rabies vaccination is required for all dogs, cats and ferrets over the age of three months.

The health department is offering the clinic at Mauthe Park from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Vaccination shots are $8 (cash only) and you do not need an appointment. Pet owners are required to keep their pets on a leash or in a cage.
