Safe community. Welfare of strays.
Wikipedia estimates 20,000 rabies deaths in India. With the co-existence of humans and dogs on the streets, the risk of exposure is alarming. There is an increasing fear among people regarding stray dogs.
Mission Rabies has set up a Nationwide Rabies Network and is raising funds to vaccinate 2 million stray dogs in the key hot-spots of India. In their pilot project last year, 5 staff from Blue Cross of Hyderabad participated in an Anti Rabies Camp in Bikaner, near Jaipur. In the 15-day camp, Teja, Lallu, Hari, Prasad and Rajkumar helped the Mission Rabies team vaccinate over 2,400 dogs.
