301 Animals Immunized at Free Rabies Clinic in Westfield

The May 19th Rabies Clinic sponsored by NCCR and the Town of Westfield was a great success.  93 dogs and 208 cats were vaccinated.  This is up from last years clinic where a total of 222  (60 cats and 162 dogs) were vaccinated.

Vaccinations were provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets three months of age and older. New York State Public Health Law requires each dog, cat and domesticated ferret over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies and county residents are encouraged to be responsible pet owners by having their pets vaccinated.

Rabies is a very serious disease of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus. Raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes are the common disease carriers. The virus is transmitted to humans and animals through saliva and it can enter the body from a bite, scratch, scrape or open cut. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system and can cause brain swelling and ultimately death within days of the onset of symptoms.

For more information about the clinics and rabies in general, visit or contact the Division of Public Health at (716) 753-4481.

Pancake Breakfast Success!

Pancake Breakfast Success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to NCCR’s Annual Pancake Breakfast. A huge thank you to those who donated supplies to make the event possible; Big Rick’s One Stop, Brazil’s, Dennis & Sandy Lutes, Anne Moelk and Marcia Okerlund and of course the NCCR volunteers who did the cooking, serving and clean-up. We also had some great raffle baskets donated by Toni Naeser, Barb Kosierb & Lynn Gresham. We are so grateful for everyone’s support, over $1100 was raised and it’s all for the dogs!
