RABIES ALERT

RABIES ALERT
#11221419

On November 22, 2014 Henry County Animal Control received a call that a fox attacked a person and the fox was killed. The remains of the fox 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 around Madisyn Dr., Hampton 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) that are acting in an unusual manner.

For more information, visit www.hcacc.org or contact Henry County Rabies Control Officer, Vince Farah at (770) 288-7387.
