Pet Tip: Protect you and your pet from rabies

The rabies virus is spread mainly through bites. Avoid all contact with wild animals, never feed or handle them.

Secure your trash, as open trash containers will attract wild animals. Have your pets vaccinated. Confine your pets to your property. If your pet is attacked or bitten by another animal, contact your veterinarian. If you suffer an animal bite, wash the wound thoroughly and contact your physician.

For more information, visit the Humane Society of Washington County at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown or call (301) 733-2060.
