Rabies shot at 14 yrs.

My mother in law wants to have her 14 yr old cats teeth cleaned, but they will not do it unless he has a rabies shot, even though the cat is a strictly indoor cat. She is worried he too old for it, and can't understand why they treat the cat for allergies, etc. without a shot, but won't clean the teeth without one. They told her they could give the cat a shot right before they clean the teeth, but whats the point in doing it then, if their worried about rabies, the shot wouldn't help. Do you think its safe for an old cat to get a rabies shot, and especially at the time of dental cleaning?
