•2100 block of Colbert Grove Church Road, Colbert, dog versus raccoon
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.
