Which animals are not likely to have rabies?

In Kansas, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, prairie dogs, opossums, mice, and rats have not been known to be involved in the transmission of rabies. This is also true of caged household pets such as hamsters, guinea pigs, and gerbils. Ferrets are an exception to this general rule.
