Henry County Animal Care & Control
On February 4, 2015, the Henry County Animal Care and Control Department received a call that a raccoon had attacked a dog. The raccoon was 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 Lone Oaks Subdivision off of Snapping Shoals Road in the Ola Community.
- 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. Additionally, residents should be vigilant of the behavior of not only their own pets, but also of surrounding wildlife (e.g. foxes, skunks) that are acting in an unusual manner.
