The Foxborough Board of Health would like to advise the community that April is Rabies
Awareness Month. Millions of adults and children are treated each year, in the United
States, for animal bites and scratches. We would like to remind you about the importance
of getting your dogs and cats vaccinated against rabies, which will reduce the risk of
animal bites and other potential rabies exposures.

We will be sponsoring our annual RABIES CLINIC with Dr. Moschella on Saturday,
April 2, from 8:00 to Noon, at the HIGHWAY GARAGE on Elm Street.
Hours will be 8:00 – 10:00 for cats and 10:00 – 12:00 for dogs.

People can reduce their risk from rabies by taking the following precautions:

  1. Avoid contact with wildlife, including strange dogs and cats.
  2. Bat-proofing your home.
  3. Make sure your pet is vaccinated.
  4. Educate your children on ways to avoid being bitten.
