Rabies Alert

Rabies Alert: Sick Raccoon Found in Area of Roop Avenue Between Burlington & Center Avenues


The Middletown Township Health Department responded to a call concerning a sick raccoon in the area of Roop Avenue between Burlington Avenue and Center Avenue on January 26, 2019. Middletown Animal Control captured the raccoon and it was sent to the State Laboratory for testing. Laboratory results received on February 1, 2019 confirmed that the raccoon was rabid.

Residents should be reminded not to interact with wildlife under any circumstance. If you come across a sick or injured animal, keep your distance and avoid all contact. Call Animal Control at 732-615-2097 immediately or contact the Police Department at 732-615-2100 after hours and on weekends.

Please make sure all domestic animals (dogs, cats, and livestock) are currently vaccinated with a Rabies shot. Do not let your pets run free off leash, even in the woods, to ensure they do not come in contact with wildlife that may be rabid. Remember, Rabies is a fatal disease. The best course of defense is the vaccination of your pets and not handling or interacting with wildlife. If you are bitten or exposed to blood/saliva of an animal, contact your physician immediately. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet was exposed to wildlife, even if previously vaccinated.
