RABIES ALERT

RABIES ALERT
#10272014-18

On October 27, 2014 Henry County Animal Control received a call that a raccoon had fought with a dog and was killed. The remains of the raccoon were taken to the Georgia Public Health Laboratory for rabies testing, and the results came back positive for the rabies virus.

The Henry County Animal Care and Control Department has issued a 45-day Rabies Alert, as required by the Georgia Rabies Control Manual, for a half-mile area in and around the Lakehaven Subdivision and the English Oaks Subdivision and the vicinity of Hol-Mar Trail off of S.R. 155 North in McDonough GA.

During this alert, residents living within this area should make sure that all of their companion animals are up to date on their rabies vaccinations, administered by a licensed veterinarian, and if not, should have companion animals vaccinated as soon as possible. Additionally, residents should be vigilant of the behavior of not only their own pets, but also of surrounding wildlife (e.g. foxes, skunks) which are acting in an unusual manner.
