Protect your cautious of animals exhibiting unusual behavior.


On August 6, 2015, Henry County Animal Control received a call that a raccoon had made contact with an outdoor cat. The remains of the raccoon were taken to the Georgia Public Health Laboratory for rabies testing, and the results came back positive making this our 7th case for the rabies virus this year.


The Henry County Animal Care and Control Department has issued a:45-day Rabies Alert, as required by the Georgia Rabies Control Manual, for a half mile area surrounding THE 300 block of Oak Hill Terrace in the City of Stockbridge, Georgia.

During this alert, residents living within this area should make sure that all of their companion animals have a current rabies vaccination; if not, it must be done as soon as possible Additionally, residents should be vigilant regarding the behavior of not only their own pets, but also of surrounding wildlife (e.g. foxes, skunks and raccoons) that may be acting in an unusual manner.
