[ARCHIVED] Rabies Case Confirmed


John Schellenberg, Environmental Health Manager, urges all citizens to make sure that their pets have current rabies shots. He also advises residents to not feed wild animals or leave food outside for their pets that may attract wild animals. Finally, all contact with wild or stray animals should be avoided. If you are bitten or scratched by an animal, immediately wash the wound thoroughly and contact your physician or the Health Department for further advice. If a citizen sees a sickly animal, particularly a raccoon, they should call the Hampton City Animal Control at 727-6111 and advise them of its location so they can pick up the animal. Anyone needing additional information may call the Health Department at 727-2570.
