In brief: Unlikely

But there are no vaccines that provide complete immunity to all those receiving them. Check the local health department for evidence of rabies in your geographic area among the wild animals, and also for any reports of human cases.
The most common mode of transmission of rabies in the U.S. Is from bats, not pets.
