Rabies is a zoonotic disease of importance to both animals and humans because of its zoonotic nature and near 100% fatality rate. Animal shelter workers are an at-risk group for rabies exposure, as they frequently deal with stray animals and wildlife brought into the shelter.
You are invited to participate in a national survey of shelter workers to answer qestions regarding your sheltering agency’s rabies prevention practices and policies. It should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete.
Please fill out the survey no later than August 1.
This survey is being conducted by Dr. Zarah Hedge, Master’s in Public Health Candidate and Shelter Medicine Resident, Oregon Humane Society.
