A raccoon in the Town of Bovina has tested positive for rabies. Exposure to rabies can be fatal for a human or a pet. Vaccination of pets and other animals is the best preventive measure and responsible pet owners need to keep pet vaccinations current. The County offers free clinics in different communities throughout the year.

The remaining 2019 rabies clinics are listed below:
Walton – August 6, 2019 – 6:00 – 8:00 PM Walton Highway Garage, 25091 NY- 10, Walton, NY 13856.
Roxbury – August 22, 2019 – 6:00 – 8:00 PM Roxbury Town Garage, 52508 NY-30, Roxbury, NY 12474.
Tompkins – September 4, 2019 – 6:00 pm – 8:00 PM Highway Garage, 8586 St. Route 206, Trout Creek, NY.
East Branch – September 10, 2019 – 7PM – 8:30PM, East Branch Fire Hall, 29 Bridge St, East Branch, NY 13756.

Rabies is a virus that, once it infects an organism, has a 100% fatality rate for mammals, including humans if left untreated. Public Health recommends the following precautions to protect from possible exposure to rabies:

• Report any sick or strange acting wildlife

• Vaccinate pets and livestock. New York State law requires that all dogs, cats and ferrets be vaccinated against rabies by 4 months of age. Vaccinating a domestic animal not only provides protection for the animal, but vaccinated pets act as a barrier to keep the rabies virus from spreading between wild animals and people.

• Do not feed wildlife or stray animals and discourage them from seeking food near your home.

• Do not approach an unknown animal, either wild or domestic, especially if it is acting in a strange or unusual manner.

• Report all animal bites and any contact with bats to the Health Department in your county. Human rabies can be prevented after exposure by administering a series of shots.

• If an unvaccinated pet comes in contact with rabid or suspected rabies the pet must be quarantined for six months.

To report a suspected rabid animal call Delaware County Public Health Services at 607-832-5200 or for more information visit their website at

Also, as a reminder, all dogs over 4 months of age must be licensed per New York State Ag & Markets Law. Contact the Town Clerk if your dog is not licensed and you reside in the Town of Bovina. If your dog is licensed and you are unsure if they are current on their rabies vaccination, contact the Clerk.


The Annual Water Quality Report for 2017 for the Bovina Water District #1 has been completed. A report has been submitted to the NYS Department of Health in Albany. A copy of the report is also on file at the Town Clerk’s office where it may be seen by any interested party during business hours.

Re: Bovina Hamlet outdoor Cats

To Residents of the Bovina Hamlet:

In partnership with The Heart of the Catskills, Lisa Jacobson and a few Bovina residents, have begun a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Program to control the outdoor cat population in the Bovina Hamlet. In a TNR Program, community cats are humanely trapped (with box traps), brought to a veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and eartipped (the universal sign that an outdoor cat has been neutered and vaccinated), and then returned to its outdoor home.

Spayed and neutered cats in an outdoor community will not allow any cats who are not spayed and neutered in, which is how the cat population is stabilized.

The goal of the TNR Program in the Bovina Hamlet is to spay, neuter and vaccinate every cat in the colony. Lisa would like your assistance in identifying any stray cats that you see in the Hamlet. If you want to report a cat sighting or want to assist in the Program you can reach her at 607-538-1691 or 631-835-4840.

Thank you,
Bovina Town Board
