Protect you, your family and your pets from rabies:

  • Avoid all contact with unfamiliar animals.
  • Keep vaccinations up to date for all pets.
  • Never handle or adopt wild animals, or bring them into your home.
  • Prevent bats from entering your home.
  • Do not let your pets run free or leave them unattended.
  • Keep pets indoors at night.
  • Feed pets indoors, so outdoor food dishes won’t attract strange animals.
  • Tightly cap garbage cans.
  • Encourage children to immediately tell an adult if they are bitten by an animal.
  • Report all animal bites to Delaware County Public Health Services.
Rabies advisory: Due to the increased risk of being exposed to an animal infected with the rabies virus during the warmer months, Delaware County Public Health reminds residents and visitors they can reduce their risk of exposure by remembering the following:  •	DO NOT approach, handle, or feed wild or domestic animals with whom you are unfamiliar. •	DO NOT discard a bat found in your sleeping quarters upon waking, or one with which you may have come into contact. Try to trap or capture it if you can do so safely, so that it can be tested.  •	DO NOT allow your pets to run free. •	DO keep your pet vaccinations up to date. •	DO call Public Health Services if you are bitten or scratched by a domestic or wild animal. Safely capturing an animal or bat so that it can be tested for rabies is preferable to being treated with the expensive rabies vaccination series following an exposure. For more info on Rabies Prevention call Delaware County Public Health Services at 607-832-5200.
Don’t touch wild animals! They may look cute and cuddly, but they are wild animals. If you touch them, they may bite or scratch you. Did you know wild animals need to get tested for rabies if they scratch or bite you? Did you know they have to be KILLED to be tested for rabies, even if they are not sick? Foxes, raccoons, skunks and bats can carry rabies. If you see an abandoned wild baby animal, leave them alone for their sake. Talk with an animal rehabilitator for guidance.
