Colorado Rabies Resource Guide

The Colorado Rabies Resource Guide is a resource for the monitoring, prevention and control of rabies in Colorado. The target audience is “first responders” to rabies:  local public health officials, animal control agencies, wildlife officials, animal health officials, veterinarians, wildlife control operators and wildlife rehabilitators. This document was drafted by the Colorado Rabies (CORAB) Task Force, a self-appointed group which first met on June 21, 2010. The mission of CORAB is to coordinate state, local and federal resources for protection of public health, wildlife health and domestic animal health from rabies in Colorado.  
The latest version of this guidance document is available from us at 303-692-2700, the Colorado Association of Animal Control Officers (CAACO) members-only Web page ( and the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) members-only Web page (
