PET SHOPS ON-LINE

Skunk Law  A brand new site dedicated to the laws governing skunks. Skunklaw was formed by Dominique and Beth Durbin for the purpose of eliminating bans on domestic striped skunks as pets. We are dedicated to seeing "kill only policies" changed not only in Illinois but across the United States. It is our belief that prohibition policies are inhumane and create negative public opinions about a noble species. Our goal is to promote positive aspects of the domestic skunk as a companion animal and advocate for the humane treatment of both domestic and wild skunks.
 

 

PET SHOPS ON-LINERabies Information: There is a rabies shot called Imrab3, made in Georgia. The testing was all done years ago. "All" we have to do is get the word SKUNKS on the label and we're there, but that has proven VERY difficult, twice. There have been petitions with thousands of names presented to the company and before they could do anything, other people have made unpleasant waves and ticked the company off. Reportedly the petitions have been destroyed....I don't know.
Though rehabbers do it openly, it is illegal to inoculate wildlife by most
state laws and since we haven't succeeded (or even tried?) in getting
distinction written in law between WILD and DOMESTIC skunks.......technically it's
illegal for us to inoculate our own animals. That is a hurdle that needs addressing before we can hope to succeed
in getting an approved Rabies vaccine for our skunks.

Canada has been baiting for Rabies for years and has almost obliterated it
from their wildlife......the Imrab3 success rate is 98%...
and the last I heard, ours, which the FDA approves and the law requires that
we give dogs and cats, has a success rate of 70% I believe.

So, if you would like to own a skunk... which is a wonderful pet... contact the USDA or DNR in your state and tell them about the rabies vaccine
