Rabies Vaccination Ordinance Amended to Include 1-year and 3-year Vaccinations

Rabies Vaccination Ordinance Amended to Include 1-year and 3-year Vaccinations

At their meeting on Monday, September 11th, 2023, New Braunfels City Council approved changes to the City’s rabies vaccination ordinance that increases the period required between vaccinations.

The ordinance revisions come following a July 2023 recommendation from the Animal Services Advisory Board to update the City’s ordinance so that it matches the State of Texas Rabies Control rules. Specifically, the newly revised ordinance allows residents and veterinarians to choose a rabies vaccine based on the recommended interval for vaccination established by the manufacturer. The newly amended ordinance means that residents can have their pets receive either a one-year vaccine or a three-year vaccine, whichever works best for their pets.

“This effectively extends the period for updated vaccinations that are often needed for grooming and other pet-related services,” said Neighborhood Services Manager Bryan Ruiz. “That means it’s a great time to check on your pet’s vaccination status and to renew those vaccinations if necessary.”

Along with checking the current status of vaccinations for pets, the New Braunfels Animal Welfare and Rescue division is also encouraging residents to register their pets. It’s a free service that is required by City ordinance if you reside inside the City limits and have a dog or cat that is older than 4 months. Pet registration requires a current rabies certificate and a picture of the pet, making it easier to reunite lost pets with owners. Use the City of New Braunfels Online Pet Registration Form, one for each pet in your household.
