An animal control officer with Hillsborough County Animal Services was in the Northdale area Friday evening setting traps in an effort to capture some of the more than 15 cats considered "feral" by the county.
Pasco County, Florida -- Hillsborough County Animal Services says the seven cats quarantined due to a rabies incident in a Northdale neighborhood back in August are ready for adoption.
The incident happened along the 4200 block of Sand Lake Court after a two-year-old girl was bit by a cat that showed signs of rabies.
Animal services came out shortly after the incident was reported and set out traps to try to catch some the more than 15 cats considered "feral" by the county. They caught seven and after testing and observation, animal services officials say none of the cats showed any signs of rabies symptoms and tests came back clean.
You can contact Hillsborough Animal Services at 813-744-5660 if you are interested in adopting any of the seven cats.
Meanwhile, a rabies threat continues in northwest Pasco County after a cat tested positive for rabies back in July.
