nutravet is proud to sponsor Lisa Angus who is swapping vaccinating the patients of Wendover Heights Veterinary Centre (WHVC) for the street dogs of India.
Lisa will be working with the Mission Rabies team in India for 4 weeks, vaccinating 50,000 dogs against rabies in just 30 days. The project finishes on World Rabies day on 28th September 2013 and is in association with the Worldwide Veterinary Service and Dogs Trust.
India is the rabies hotspot of the world, where a child dies of rabies every hour, most often after being fatally bitten by an infected dog. Fear of rabies in India results in hundreds of thousands of healthy dogs being inhumanely destroyed every year. Mission Rabies is just the start of a sustainable long-term project in India to vaccinate and neuter dogs, to train local vets to continue rabies control and develop a National Rabies Network, all to save the lives of people and dogs and prevent the spread of the disease.
