I was surprised to learn that my new town has a 1-year rabies law. What a pain.


If you decide to try to change the law, let me know and I will help you. My e-mail is ledgespring@lincoln.midcoast.com.

We've had the three year rabies for a while. Didn't realize it wasn't the standard.


All 50 states now allow for a 3 year vaccine, however, some allow local municipalities to override the state law and impose annual vaccinations.
