Rabies laws for pets are not always the same for dogs and cats, can be different depending on the animal’s age and can vary wildly from state to state. The Policy Surveillance Program administered by Temple University’s Beasley School of Law has launched an interactive map that details state rabies vaccination laws for dogs, cats and ferrets. The map includes laws for all 50 states and Washington, D.C. (laws in effect as of March 9, 2018). To look up the rabies laws in your state, visit lawatlas.org/datasets/rabies-vaccination-laws.
