People at Alachua County Animal Services estimate there are at least 36-thousand stray cats in Alachua County. Since those cats aren't getting the proper medical care, they could have deadly diseases, which could easily spread to you.
Today vet students, veterinarians, and volunteers transformed Uf's vet school into an emergency room just for cats. They gave hundreds of cats rabies vaccinations. Rabies is a fatal disease. Prevention is the key, because once someone becomes sick from it then you will die.
Vets says when domestic pets get rabies they become very aggressive. And when wild animals get rabies they act sick and lethargic.
