be vaccinated.

World Rabies Day, recognized this year on September 28, 2022, is a global health observance which
began in 2007 to raise awareness about rabies and bring together partners to enhance prevention and
control efforts worldwide. As stated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “While rabies is a
100% preventable disease, more than 59,000 people die from the disease around the world each year.
World Rabies Day is an opportunity to reflect on our efforts to control this deadly disease and remind
ourselves that the fight is not yet over.”

Dan Driscoll, Program Manager of the Inspection Division states, “We are delighted to continue this
important partnership with 4 Paws Spa and Training Center, Inc. and its owner, Robin Greenwood.
Without their cooperation and support, this very successful annual event would not be possible.”

The location is as follows:

Saturday, September 24, 2022, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

• 4 Paws Spa and Training Center, 121 A Industry Lane, Forest Hill, MD 21050
