PAT Clinic Vaccinates Over 100 Dogs on World Rabies Day

  • Dogs

Rabies is the world’s deadliest infectious disease, and nearly 60,000 people around the world die from rabies each year.

To help raise awareness of this deadly disease, World Rabies Day is observed each year and is also a way to showcase the ways in which people and organisations are helping to fight rabies worldwide. 

For this year’s World Rabies Day on September 28th, the People and Animals (PAT) clinic organised a special community event to vaccinate an entire population of street dogs in the local Klad Luang sub district of Phetchaburi.

And the results were incredible: over 100 dogs were vaccinated against rabies and other deadly diseases. A big “thank you” goes to the Klad Luang Subdistrict Administrative Organization Phetchaburi for collaborating with us on this event and for donating much-needed rabies vaccines.

PAT’s incredible vet team was also able to treat over fifty of the animals for various ailments including some with horrific skin conditions, as we were able to buy treatments like Bravecto thanks to donations from our generous supporters. 

Vaccination events like this are essential in eliminating rabies in local communities, which helps protect both animals and humans from the disease.

In fact, major health organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), have set the goal of eliminating rabies deaths in people that are caused by dogs by 2030.

This World Rabies Day event was part of the PAT clinic’s ongoing, year-round work to sterilise and vaccinate the street cats and dogs of Phetchaburi, and this important mission is only possible thanks to our kind supporters. Please help us to continue the PAT clinic and our other life-saving work for wildlife by making a donation.
