Franklin County Public Health is responsible for preventing residents from rabies infection. To do this, the County investigates all reported animal to human bites, and animal to animal bites; decides whether a rabid animal should be tested, confined or observed; and determines whether someone potentially exposed to rabies should be treated.

     Rabies clinics are held throughout the County, with the help of a local veterinarian, throughout the year.
