Rabies clinic planned in Seymour

SEYMOUR - A rabies clinic will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday at Ansonia Animal Hospital, 876 S. Main St., Ansonia Animal Control Officer Jean Roslonowski said.

The veterinary office of Dr. Tara Nanavati is on the Ansonia town line.

The clinic is offering rabies vaccinations for $20 for a one-year shot, or a three-year one if paperwork shows proof the animal's shots are up to date, Roslonowski said.

In addition, she said Nanavati is offering special prices on neutering cats in May and June. The cost of neutering for male cats will be $50 with one shot; $75 for female cats with one shot.

"We are trying to start a cat project," Roslonowski said.

There will be several vendors in the parking lot that afternoon.

Roslonowski said Hearts and Tails, an Ansonia nonprofit, will be holding a can drive to raise funds for the Ansonia animal shelter.
Seymour Assistant Animal Control Officer Teri Montana said C.A.R.E.S., which stands for Coco's Animal Rescue Efforts of Seymour, will be on hand to raise funds for the Seymour Animal Shelter.  "We'll be selling homemade cookies for dogs," she said.

"Ninety-nine percent of the money (raised) goes to medical bills," Montana said.
That includes spay and neutering and surgeries.
Montana said the shelter currently has a cat, Winky, who is in need of surgery to remove one eye and repair his other eye. The operation will cost between $1,000 and $1,100, which she said is a discounted price.
