FAIRPLAY - A raccoon found in an enclosure with two dogs at a Fairplay home tested positive for rabies, the Humane Society of Washington County said Tuesday.
It happened about two or three weeks ago, Humane Society spokeswoman Katherine Cooker said.
There were no signs the raccoon fought with the dogs, which are in a 45-day quarantine at their residence, Cooker said.
The dogs had had their rabies shots and were given booster shots as a precaution, a Humane Society news release says.
No humans were exposed to rabies in this case.
No other details were available Tuesday afternoon. Cooker referred additional questions to the Washington County Health Department, which was closed for the day.
