The world is once again joining together to raise awareness and understanding about the importance of rabies prevention. Rabies is the oldest and deadliest disease known to mankind, and Maricopa County is supporting this initiative.

Rabies prevention starts with the animal owner. Protect yourself, your pet and your community by taking animals to be vaccinated. Avoid stray animals and wildlife. If you are bitten, wash bite wounds with soap and water and seek medical attention immediately. If your pet is bitten, consult your veterinarian immediately. Prompt and appropriate treatment after being bitten and before the disease develops can stop rabies infection and/or prevent the disease in humans and animals.

In honor of World Rabies Day, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control is hosting a free rabies vaccination clinic for the community from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28, at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, 2500 S. 27th Ave.

MCACC's Animal Care Centers will offer low cost ($20) rabies vaccinations from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. that day. The centers are located at 2500 S. 27th Ave. in Phoenix and 2630 W. 8th St. in Mesa.
