Rabies: An Incurable Disease
All cats and dogs four months and older must be vaccinated against rabies. Wildlife (skunks, raccoons, bats, foxes) can spread this incurable disease to your pet. Rabies can be transmitted to humans and may be fatal unless a series of anti-rabies shots are taken. Save your current rabies certificate for licensing.
Rabies Vaccination Required
If your dog or cat is found running at large, or is involved in an incident requiring the assistance of Animal Control, proof of current rabies vaccination and City pet license must be shown or the owner will be required to make a deposit equal to the cost of such with the Coralville Police Department or shelter.
The owner shall have 24 hours in which to have the animal vaccinated and licensed to receive a deposit refund. Upon failure to procure a certificate of vaccination within 24 hours, the deposit shall be forfeited and the animal shall be seized and impounded.
