World Rabies Day is September 28, 2017

Rabies remains a major concern worldwide, killing tens of thousands of people every year. In the United States, one to two people die annually, and there were more than 5,500 reported cases of animal rabies in the U.S. in 2015.

World Rabies Day, launched in 2007, aims to raise awareness about the public health impact of human and animal rabies.

What can YOU do?

  • Vaccinate your animals
  • Keep them away from wildlife that can spread the disease.
  • Rabies is 100% preventable.

According to Dr. Charles Rupprecht, former chief of the rabies program at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Your local veterinarian plays a key role in controlling rabies.”
