World Rabies Day is September 28th! Rabies is a deadly virus that kills people, pets, and wildlife across the globe. Help us end rabies by raising awareness in your area and by keeping your pets up-to-date on their rabies vaccinations - which protects not only your pet, but also you and your family from the virus. Be sure to report possible exposures to your local DHEC office.

DHEC World Rabies Day Photo Album

World Rabies Day is a global health observance that seeks to raise awareness about rabies and enhance prevention and control efforts.

DHEC invited South Carolinians to join in the fight against rabies by sending in photos of their vaccinated pets and livestock. Please check out our World Rabies Day 2015 album on Facebook or Flickr, and thank you to everyone who sent in photos!

World Rabies Day is co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and the Alliance for Rabies Control (ARC).

Please visit our Rabies by the Numbers Map for up-to-date SC rabies case counts broken down by county.
