rabies alert

rabies alertATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ –  The Township of Aberdeen is seeking information from anyone who may have adopted or privately purchased pitbull puppies from the Cliffwood section of Aberdeen within the past three weeks.  People who have been in contact with these puppies are at risk of contracting the rabies virus, which is fatal without medical treatment within a relatively short time of exposure. 

If you personally adopted the puppies or observed anyone with a new pitbull puppy, please immediately contact either Holly Reycraft at 732-583-4200 ext. 117 or Brittany Shea at 732-583-4200 ext. 130. 

 

Despite being infected with the rabies virus, these puppies may appear and behave normally without exhibiting any symptoms, but they can still transmit the virus to people and other animals.
