The Pet Fair is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9 am to 3 p.m. at Pottstown Memorial Park, which is located at 75 West King Street in Pottstown. This is a free community event which includes retail vendors, animal rescues, a food court, pet photos, and a dog walk to benefit the dog park.
As part of the county’s Rabies Control Program, the Montgomery County Health Department will be at the Pet Fair to provide a low-cost rabies-vaccination clinic from 9 to 11 a.m. for dogs, cats and ferrets. The cost to obtain a rabies vaccination is $10 per shot. The county uses a licensed three-year vaccine, however if this is a pet’s first time being vaccinated, the rabies shot is only good for one year. Visitors to the rabies-vaccination clinic should bring their pet in an approved carrier or on a leash.
