Pet owners who seek a three-year vaccination must show proof of prior vaccination. Animals must be leashed or in proper carriers; neither the municipality nor the county health department is responsible for animals that get away.
An animal infected with the rabies virus can appear unstable with a wobbly walk, and they may be excessively drooling or foaming at the mouth. Wild animals may appear overly friendly or aggressive if infected. Never approach an animal displaying symptoms of rabies. Always contact your local animal control if you suspect an animal is rabid.
