Do all states require a rabies vaccination?

The short answer: no. While most states regulate the frequency of vaccinations and who may administer the rabies vaccination, there are some states that do not require their owner to vaccinate their pet for rabies. According to the AVMA the, “While some states have adopted statewide mandated vaccinations for dogs and cats against rabies, others delegate that decision to local governments such as counties. Some states only include rabies vaccination as a requirement for import into the state.”

How long are rabies certificates valid?

Some rabies vaccinations are valid for one year, while others are valid for three years. Many states require yearly rabies vaccinations for dogs, cats, ferrets and horses.
