Risk of a rabid raccoon: Mosby Way, 19600 block, Poolesville, Dec. 27. Two boxer-mix dogs were seen by their owner chasing a raccoon around their yard. The owner found the raccoon dead, presumably killed by the dogs; animal services picked up the raccoon for rabies testing. It tested positive. The dogs were taken to their veterinarian for rabies boosters and placed under home observation for 45 days. If the dogs had not been previously vaccinated, they would have undergone a six-month quarantine required by state law to prevent the possible spread of the disease.

Shelter has adoptable cats: Cats and kittens will be available through the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County no-kill shelter at the following location. For information, call 301-740-2511 or visit www.awlmc.org.
