Appointments can be made by calling the shelter, located at 269 Peconic Lane in Peconic, at (631) 765-1811.

NFAWL will also be offering free rabies vaccinations at it’s Riverhead shelter on Sunday, June 22 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Shots are offered in conjunction with the county Department of Health, and pet owners are encouraged to bring copies of previous rabies certifications, according to a release.

Vaccinations are offered on a first come, first serve basis. Dogs must be on leashes and all cats and ferrets must be in carriers.
