2-sided tri-fold brochure -- How to Avoid Being Bitten 

REPORT ANIMAL BITES!   According to Indiana Law, all animal bites are to be reported to the local Health Department.  If you are bitten by any animal, whether a pet, stray, or wild animal:

  • REPORT THE INCIDENT  by calling (812) 738-3237.   

  • The biting animal must be quarantined for 10 days (this can be done at the animal's home) and checked for annual rabies vaccines.  

  • According to State law, any dog, cat, or ferret 3 months of age or older must be vaccinated against rabies with an annual or triennial rabies vaccine by a licensed veterinarian.   

  • If the animal has not had its rabies shot, the owner will be given 10 additional days to get it.

  • Dr. Randall Benham from Cornerstone Animal Clinic in Irvington, KY, offers rabies shots the first Saturday of every month at Tractor Supply in Corydon, 9 am to noon!  Cost of rabies shot: $10.  Call 812-734-0296 if you have further questions.  

  • Wild animals or strays may be tested for rabies if necessary.
