The hot, dry weather has raised the concern of public health professionals in the Wiregrass.
There's been more than a half-dozen cases of foxes, raccoons and other animals testing positive for rabies.
Enterprise veterinarian, Dr. Jim Sparrow, held a rabies clinic in Elba.
For a ten-dollar fee, pet owners were able to get their dog and cat vaccinated for the upcoming year.
Dr. Sparrow reminds everyone there's no cure for rabies. If an animal or human contracts the disease, it's always lethal.
Elba's animal control department helped spearhead the annual rabies clinic.
