Henry County Animal Care & Control
What Should You Do If You Are Bitten by an Animal?
A "bite" occurs when the teeth or claws of an animal break your skin and bleeding occurs or if your mucus membranes come into contact with the saliva of an animal.
ALL ANIMAL TO HUMAN BITES MUST BE REPORTED TO ANIMAL CONTROL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. In the event of an animal bite, immediately cleanse the contact area with soap and running water. In addition to notifying Animal Control, call your doctor or emergency room.
If you have been bitten by an animal, we encourage you to complete this report and send it back to us as soon as possible.
Please send the completed form to Vince Farah via email or via fax to (770) 288-7432.
