Rabies is a zoonotic disease that passes between species.
At present 55,000 people world-wide die of rabies each year -- with 36% of all deaths in India.
Rabies is the deadliest disease on earth with a 99.9% fatality rate.
Rabies is 100% Vaccine Preventable.
By vaccinating 70% of dog populations, countries can create “herd immunity", effectively slowing the spread of rabies until it is eradicated. We can END RABIES.
Educate. Vaccinate. Eradicate
Mass vaccination of street dogs
1500 + dogs vaccinated in Kolkata
70% of dogs (at least) in each area vaccinated
Dogs marked rabies-safe with reflective collars that also reduce road accidents
Nobivac vaccine with 3 years of active immunity
All dogs data captured and tracked on streetdogs.io (& coming apps)
Involving locals through awareness programs
Fostering community dog care
It costs 30₹ to vaccinate one dog against rabies
An unsterilised mating couple over their lifetime can add up to 2000+ uncared for animals. These creatures, our fellow canine citizens, end up suffering --
- Lack of care, including malnourishment & disease, especially in newborn puppies
- Road accidents
- Dog-on-dog aggression
We conduct STERILISATION DRIVES in partnership with NGOs around the city, focusing on localities with populations at risk. Over the past year we have sterilised more than 30 dogs in areas of maximum need.
