The Madison County Animal Control office reported two recent positive rabies cases:
•Oct. 13: skunk vs. dog at the 1000 block of Coley Davis Road, Danielsville.
•Oct. 23, raccoon vs. cat at 400 block of Forest Lane, Colbert.
Animal control officials remind citizens that puppies, kittens, and ferrets must be vaccinated at 12 weeks of age. If someone is unsure of the rabies vaccination status on their pet, it is safe to give the animal a booster shot.
Call your local veterinarian or the Madison Oglethorpe Animal Shelter with questions concerning rabies vaccinations.
Georgia state law and the Madison County Animal Control Ordinance require all owners of dogs, cats and ferrets to have current rabies vaccinations.
The vaccination must be administered by a licensed veterinarian to be valid.
