Action Alert: Urge Legislators in WEST VIRGINIA to Approve HB4407


Advocates for rabies law reform and rabies medical exemption for sick and senior dogs and cats are urged to contact West Virginia lawmakers to pass HB 4407.

Thanks to the focus and diligence of Kris Christine and The Rabies Challenge Fund, the bill, known as WEST VIRGINIA HB 4407, has been introduced in the West Virginia House Agriculture Committee by Delegates Guthrie, Butcher, and Maypenny. It would change the current two year rabies booster requirement for dogs and cats to the three year national standard and include a clause to exempt animals under the care of a licensed veterinarian for acute or chronic illness from rabies booster shots.

How You Can Help

Contact the House Agriculture Committee members and ask them to pass HB 4407.

A message may be phoned in to the Agriculture Committee Chair, Delegate Butcher at (304) 340-3113 or e-mailed to all the committee members at:
