Rabies Control Services

Animal Bites & Rabies Control

  • Animal bite reports are received from residents, police departments, doctor’s offices and hospitals
  • NWBRHC checks to see if the animal is licensed (licensing requires proof of Rabies vaccination). 
  • The animal’s owner is sent a Notice of Bite and Confinement to inform them to quarantine the animal for 10 days and observe for any evidence of Rabies.  If the animal has aquired rabies, symptoms will appear within 10 days
  • After the 10 days, NWBRHC contacts the owner to determine if the dog is healthy
    • If healthy, the file is closed 
    • If showing evidence of rabies, the owner must contact Animal Control immediately
