Rabies continues to pop up in Pueblo, and it may be the worst seen in the state this year.
Those at the health department say 19 animals, including bats, skunks, and foxes, have tested positive for rabies so far this year, and the total for all of 2011 was only 15.
Fourteen pets have been euthanized, and even more than that have been quarantined.
The easy way to help protect your pets and family is to follow the law in Pueblo and get all pets vaccinated.
"The number one way to protect your pet is to have your pet up to date on their rabies vaccination, so we encourage everybody to check their dog's tags or call the veterinarian and make sure they're up to date," said Sarah Joseph, Public Information Officer at the Pueblo Health Department.
You may still have time to make it to an informational session on the rabies trend in Pueblo to learn where you can get vaccinations.
That's at 6pm (Thursday, June 14) at Rawlings Library.
