Rabies Control Program
The Waukesha County Environmental Health Division operates a state approved Local Rabies Control Program. It is administered by our Humane Officers.
What is Rabies? Rabies is a viral disease that can affect all mammals, including humans. The virus attacks the central nervous system and can be secreted in saliva. Because rabies affects people as well as animals, control of this disease is a priority of the Environmental Health Division. In cooperation with the Waukesha County Veterinary Medical Association all reported animal bites are investigated, followed up and appropriate actions taken to prevent transmission of the rabies virus.
