Help protect yourself and your pets from the spread of rabies by taking the following steps:
Keep rabies vaccinations up-to-date for all dogs and cats.
If a wild animal bites your pet, seek veterinary assistance for your pet immediately.
Avoid stray and/or fighting animals. Instead call 3-1-1 for help.
- Spay or neuter your pets to help reduce the number of unwanted pets that may not be properly cared for or regularly vaccinated.
Teach children to avoid unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic.
When traveling abroad, avoid direct contact with wild animals and be especially careful around dogs in developing countries.
