Is it true that rabies can occur to any vertebrate?
yes, its true. Rabis virus runs through the vertebra ( frankly through the spinal nerve). Thus any animal who has spinal cord can be a victim of rabis as well as can spread rabis too. Dogs, Wolvs, foxs, etc are mainly seen to have rabis. But humans can contract rabis after bitten by the affected animals/ by another human who has rabis. So, becareful to pet any wild animal.
