Rabies is an infectious and contagious disease that can be transmitted to humans. If untreated, rabies is considered 100 percent fatal. Keeping your pets up-to-date on their rabies vaccinations is not only the law; it is also in the best interest of your pets and your family. All dogs, cats and ferrets living in Massachusetts are required by law to be vaccinated against rabies.
