Our partners at WSU vaccinated over 260,000 dogs in Kenya and Tanzania last year. Plus, any cats they came across! Kids bring their dogs, sometimes from miles away, as many of them have personally witnessed the devastating effects rabies has on people and animals. We are proud to support the effort to eliminate human and animal death from rabies in East Africa. To learn more visit www.rabiesfreeafrica.org. #EliminateRabies
Eliminating human death from rabies will only happen when we all work together. Rabies Free Kenya Program Director Dr. Thumbi Mwangi, works with the Kenyan government to design a program that emphasizes vaccinating dogs, creates access to treatment for people who were bitten, and a health surveillance system so future resources can be best deployed. www.rabiesfreeafrica.org #EliminateRabies #ZeroBy30
Rabies is easily preventable with regular dog vaccinations. Together with Rabies Free Africa, we are working to eliminate rabies in Africa, India, and other parts of Asia where 99 percent of rabies cases are found.

Rabies is the deadliest zoonotic disease on the planet. Each year more than 59,000 people die from rabies. One-half of deaths are children under the age of 16. Learn how you can help at www.rabiesfreeafrica.org #EliminateRabies #AllenSchool #WSU #rabies
A big challenge in eliminating human rabies in rural communities is keeping the vaccine cold. Rabies Free Africa researcher Dr. Felix Lankester discovered that the vaccine is more thermal tolerant than previously thought. This research is exciting as programs can now be created to reach people in very remote communities with limited access to health care. We are proud to support this program. www.rabiesfreeafrica.org #EliminateRabies #ZeroBy30

Join Us to Eliminate Rabies Worldwide

By partnering with Rabies Free Africa, our clinic is working to put an end to rabies deaths.  Although rabies is under control in developed countries, it still kills roughly 60,000 each year in Africa and Asia.  About half of those deaths are children.  

We have formed this partnership so that together with our clients we can make a global impact – one that will save the lives of dogs and the people who care for them. And, by working with Rabies Free Africa, we are already making a difference. The program in east Africa vaccinates hundreds of dogs each day.

By 2030, the goal is to reduce the number of human deaths to zero. We believe that together with our clients and other veterinary clinics across the state, we can help move closer to that goal.

Please join us in the effort to eliminate rabies worldwide. A $10 gift will vaccinate a child's dog from rabies and distemper, another major cause of mortality in young dogs. A gift of any amount will move us closer to a world where no child or dog dies from rabies. Together we can end rabies deaths.
