Several cases of rabies within the last month and half in Beaufort County have prompted Animal Control to alert people with pets.

Three confirmed cases of rabies within the last 45 days in Beaufort County has prompted Animal Control to take action.

Sandy Woolard with Animal Control says several rabies clinics will be held this weekend to protect people's pets.

Christal Gelderman in Terra Ceia, Beaufort County lost their two-year old Labrador-retriever, Lucy to rabies. Lucy's vaccination recently ran out.

Woolard says it is important to keep your pets vaccination current.

Woolard says it is against state law not to vaccinate your dog or cat with a rabies shot.

Beaufort County Animal Control will be giving discounted rabies shot for 5 dollars this weekend.
