Rabies test

I found a dead bat in my place this morning. Flew in through an open window, the cats got it. Is there a lab where I can have the bat tested? My cats haven't had a rabies shot.

I called the Pasteur Institute yesterday. After being transferred to 3 people and calling another 2, I connected with someone who said to put the bat on ice and bring it in. I did that, and after talking to another 4 people, they said they couldn't do anything. So I left the iced dead bat with them to dispose of, and today I'm going to take my 3 cats to PPAWS for rabies shots. Pasteur was absolutely a typical Khmer mash up - nobody knew what to do, so they just asked me the same questions over and over. Then looked perplexed and stood around doing nothing. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!
