Kitten adopted from shelter tests positive for rabies
A kitten adopted from an animal shelter in Camden County tested positive for rabies even though it had been vaccinated.
County health officials say a couple adopted the kitten from the Animal Welfare Association in Voorhees on June 5. It had been vaccinated on May 28.
They took the kitten to a veterinarian when it exhibited aggressive behavior four days later. The kitten bit both owners at the vet's.
The kitten was euthanized and tested positive for rabies.
Officials tell The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill the owners will receive treatment and officials are trying to determine if any other people or animals at the shelter were exposed to the rabid kitten.
