Hall County’s 32nd rabies case of the year was confirmed Wednesday.
According to a report from Hall County Animal Control, a raccoon came into contact with four dogs Sunday in the Oconee Circle area of East Hall.
The Georgia Public Health Lab later verified that the raccoon was infected with rabies.
It is not known whether the four dogs were current on their rabies vaccinations. Unvaccinated pets who encounter a rabid animal must be either quarantined or euthanized.
The Humane Society of Hall County will hold its last scheduled rabies vaccination clinics of the season from 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Oakwood Wal-Mart.
Shots are $10 each, available to dogs and cats at least 3 months of age. Pets must be restrained on a leash or in a carrier.
