NUTLEY, NJ - Dozens of cats and dogs came out to Nutley's annual rabies clinic Monday April 8 at Nutley Public Safety Headquarters. The free rabies clinic continues Tuesday April 9 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for all of the furever friends who could not make it on Monday. 

In order to reside in Nutley, every dog and cat must be registered with the township. Vaccinations against rabies are a part of the registration process. After receiving their free vaccines, a separate station was set up for registering the four legged residents. Every dog and cat was accompanied by their human to fill out the required paperwork. 

The licenses, a brass collar tag, not only proves registration, but helps reunite dogs and cats with their humans should they wander off.
