Don't be a victim of dog bites

Dog bites are the leading cause of rabies spread globally.

Nobody deserves to die form dog bites. You can easily protect yourself and those that you love.

Dogs are the main reservoir host for human and canine rabies. Vaccinating at least 70% of dogs in an area creates ‘herd immunity’.  The vaccinated dogs form a barrier, slowing the spread of rabies until it dies out.

By removing this main source of infection, rabies cases in dogs and other animal populations can be eliminated and human rabies deaths vastly reduced.

Rabies is preventable

Vaccinating your dog against rabies is the only sure way of ending rabies. It is also the most cost- effective as it reduces the demand for costly human vaccines for post-exposure treatment.
