Recently there have been two identified cases of rabies in wild animals in Pembroke. While this is something we should all be aware of and cautious about, it should not cause undo alarm.
We should all be aware of our domestic pets and not let them have unnecessary contact with wildlife.
If you see wildlife acting strangely in your immediate proximity, do not panic. If you can do so, safely gather your pets and move away from the animal. Please notify the Board of Health during business hours M-F 8:30-4:30 at 781-293-9260.
If it is urgent and the animal presents an immediate threat to you on your property, please call the police non-emergency line at 781-293-6363 so the animal control officer can be dispatched.
Please keep all domestic pets vaccinated against rabies. It is the law.
