    Host: Must dogs and cats be vaccinated to stay at a co-shelter site?

    Lesa Miller: I will say, yes and the reason I say yes they must be is because really they should be by law, vaccinated with all the vaccines that are recommended by the veterinarian, but most importantly, by law they need to be vaccinated against rabies and this is extremely important. People need to be able to show proof that their pet, their cat or dog is vaccinated either with a rabies tag and or a rabies certificate that is current from their veterinarian.
