Yearly rabies vaccinations are required by law for all dogs and cats. To aid in the effort, a series of clinics in communities throughout Hamilton County will start Friday. All clinics are scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m.

Additionally, cats-only clinics have been scheduled Thursday, April 26, at 18 area veterinary offices. The same fees apply. Cats should be brought in carriers regardless of the clinic being used.

The rabies inoculation costs $12 (bring correct change).

In some communities, there are additional costs for pet tags.

• In Signal Mountain, Collegedale, Lakesite, Red Bank and Soddy-Daisy, tags are $5 if the pet is spayed or neutered, $10 if not.

• In East Ridge, tags are $5 if the pet is spayed or neutered, $25 if not.

• In Chattanooga, tags are $10 if the pet is spayed or neutered, $50 if not. If an unaltered pet is spayed or neutered within 30 days of its rabies inoculation, there is no cost for the pet tag this year at the McKamey Animal Center, as long as the owner brings proof of the procedure.

• Hamilton County dog tags are $3.
