Colorado Rabies Resource Guide

The Colorado Rabies Resource Guide is a resource for monitoring, preventing and controlling of rabies in Colorado. The guide is for 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 whose mission is to coordinate state, local and federal resources to protect public, wildlife and domestic animals from rabies in Colorado.
