For rabies data and charts, the best site is this link to the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services — not too many maps, alas, but lots of county-by-county breakdowns and charts. You can access data for 2008 and part of this year, but not in map form.
This paper from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control has several maps on distribution of rabies virus variants, county-by-county reports of rabid raccoons (the primary carriers in this region), bats, foxes, skunks, cats and dogs. The most recent data is from 2007.
Finally, here’s a Star-News map of local rabies cases: “Fifteenth case of rabies confirmed in New Hanover County.”
