Granville County Animal Control reports the pickup of a skunk that tested positive for rabies. The rabid animal was collected in the vicinity of Cornwall and Greenway Roads in Oxford.

As mandated by North Carolina law and for their own protection, all dogs, cats and ferrets over four months of age are required to have current rabies shots. Dogs and cats should also receive a rabies booster vaccine one year after the first vaccine and every three years thereafter if the vaccine is licensed for three-year use.

Granville County Animal Control offers a reminder that one-year vaccinations are available at the Granville County Animal Shelter, Mondays through Fridays, from noon until 4:30 p.m. The cost of each shot is only $6. Call the Shelter, located at 5650 Cornwall Road in Oxford, at 919-693-6749 for details.
