The vaccination fee is $10.00. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check or money order payable to “Town of Watertown.” Pet owners who want their pets to receive a 3-year vaccine must come to the clinic with proof of valid rabies certificate. Animals three months or older who have never received the vaccine will be eligible for a 1-year rabies vaccine.
