Palm Beach County Puppy Tests Positive for Rabies
There has been a confirmed case of rabies in West Palm Beach/Palm Beach County. Rabies is a deadly virus in which there is no cure and is almost always fatal. The best way to protect yourself and your pet is to make certain that your pet is current on its rabies vaccination. The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League now offers low cost vaccinations seven days per week between the hours of 10:00am – 5:00pm. The cost for a rabies vaccine is $10.00 but there are also complete and affordable vaccine packages for just $35-$45. If you need a rabies vaccine or a complete package, please bring your dog or cat to us today!
Additional precautions to keep your pet safe:
- Steer clear of wildlife as they are the primary carriers of rabies.
- Keep your pet’s vaccines up-to-date.
- Only feed your pet indoors or take up food after they have finished eating outside. This will deter wildlife from coming around to feed.
- If you see an animal that appears sick or aggressive, please stay away and contact the Palm Beach Animal Care & Control Department at (561) 233-1200
- If you notice any of these symptoms (lethargy, aggression, excessive salivation, paralysis) with your own pet, please call your veterinarian immediately.
The cost for the vaccine is $10.00, or for senior citizens 65+ the cost is $5.00. If your pet has a record of being vaccinated for rabies in the prior year then we offer a three year vaccine. Please bring a copy of the record with you.
If your pet has no prior history of vaccination a one year vaccination is provided and in subsequent years the pet can then receive a three year vaccination.
Palm Beach County Rabies Licenses are also available for purchase. The cost for a sterilized pet tag is $20.00 and an unsterilized pet is $80.00. Senior Citizen tags are $15.00.
If your pet needs to be sterilized, please visit our affordable spay and neuter clinic
. By sterilizing your pet you help reduce the pet overpopulation problem in our community and help end euthanasia!
Please schedule your pet for surgery today!
