World Rabies Day
Founded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alliance for Rabies Control, a UK charity, the World Rabies Day initiative brings together relevant partners in an effort to address rabies prevention and control. Jane Bowers, Executive Director of Humane Society of Catawba County stated “We see World Rabies Day as an opportunity to highlight rabies prevention and control efforts in our local community”.
Humane Society of Catawba County has rabies vaccines for $10 during all Wellness Clinics. The next clinic will be held Saturday September 20th from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm, and in celebration of World Rabies Day, this clinic will have rabies vaccines for $5 or for free with purchase of a Heartworm Test.
Bowers added, “Rabies prevention starts with the animal owner. Protect yourself, your pet and your community by having your animals vaccinated for rabies”. In North Carolina, pets are required by law to be vaccinated for rabies by 4 months of age, and pets must be a minimum of 3 months of age to receive the rabies vaccination. The animal’s first rabies shot is good for one year and subsequent vaccinations are valid for three years.
Rabies is a viral disease that is spread by saliva from a rabid animal through a bite. Always report animal bites to your local animal control, and seek the medical advice/attention from your physician immediately if you are bitten by an animal.
