Any owner who acquires or commences the harboring of a dog or cat, five months of age or older, shall within twenty-one (21) days following such acquisition or harboring cause such dog or cat to be vaccinated against rabies with a vaccine approved by the State Department of Health and administered by a veterinarian licensed to practice veterinary medicine. A certificate of vaccination from any licensed veterinarian of any jurisdiction, which is less than one (1) year old, shall be deemed prima facie evidence that the animal owner has complied with this section; however, a longer period of time for expiration of the vaccination shall be prima facie evidence of compliance with this section if the effectiveness of the vaccination is certified for such longer period of time by a licensed veterinarian.
