Millie vs Rabies: 1-0 !

Millie came from a litter of 4 pups. Together with mother, her sister and 2 brothers, she was rescued by a film crew in Limuru (Kenya). They were brought to the KSPCA (Kenya Society for the Protection and Care of Animals) and once the mother had gained enough weight, she was spayed and vaccinated and returned to the owner.

As TNR Trust often assists the KSPCA with finding homes for rescued dogs and cats, this batch of little rescues came to us once they were old enough to be separated from the mother. They were born June 2017 and a handful!

But after being settled in their temporary foster home, our volunteers started training them. They graduated with flying colours: basic commands, leash walking and were eventually even used to walking on a busy road. All four of them also had built-in instincts in acting as guard dogs!

Millie was always very shy. She did not like to go near people and loved going on adventures on her own. But, once she got a little bit more attention and was introduced to other dogs and humans, she started coming out of her shell a bit more. She eventually found a great new home where she can have lots more of adventures

Millie’s new family has also been made aware of the importance of keeping her vaccinations in check. One of these vaccinations is the RABIES Vaccination. Rabies is a viral disease that is nearly always fatal. Infected dogs cause more than 99% of rabies cases in humans. In Kenya approximately 2000 humans die from the disease annually, 40% of these are children under 15. For more information, click HERE for our flyer on Rabies Prevention.

Therefore, it is very important to keep the health of your pet(s) up to standard.
