Rabies eradication

Click for our leaflet on rabies

We follow the World Health Organization guidelines which recommend mass vaccination of dogs as the most effective method of rabies eradication.

All dogs who are sterilized are vaccinated against rabies. In the municipal wards allocated to us we revaccinate stray dogs as well.

We regularly vaccinate a large number of stray dogs on site. In all we have protected 37,000 dogs against rabies. From May 2000 to May 2001 the Brihanmumbai (Greater Bombay) Municipal Corporation collaborated with us on this project.

What makes our rabies eradication programme unique:

  • Vaccination of street dogs on site.

  • The vaccination programme is supplemented by a public education programme on rabies prevention.
