What happens with my pet if it bites someone?

Whenever a dog or cat bites someone and breaks the skin, it must be quarantined for ten days. The location of the quarantine is determined by many things, such as: 

  • Is the animal rabies vaccinated and licensed?
  • Was the animal at large when it bit someone?
  • Has the animal bitten before?
  • Is there a secure location to quarantine the animal?

Your local Animal Control officer will work with you to determine what is the safest location for your pet to be quarantined.
