Caring for Dogs or Cats, Rabies, What We Do

RABIES: How do I prevent it?

In light of World Rabies Day on 28 September, we will dedicate this week’s post to Rabies: The facts, the figures, how to prevent it and our goals.

  1. Make sure your pets are vaccinated annually by a registered vet or DVO. Vaccines through a DVO are cheap, costing about Ksh 100.
  2. Do not touch unknown dogs and wildlife.
  3. Educate your community.
  4. “Do it yourself”: Facilitate/sponsor vaccinations of street dogs and pets of low income people in your community.
  5. Facilitate/sponsor sterilization of pets to reduce the spread of rabies in neglected pet populations.
  6. Contact TNR Trust for vets who participate in our community programme or contact a vet in your area through the Kenya Veterinary Board.
  7. Sponsor rabies vaccination campaigns by KSPCA, TNR Trust and other such institutions.
  8. TNR Trust’s mission is to help eradicate rabies in Kenya using a mobile clinic to
    reach communities. Be part of driving this clinic – help us eradicate rabies and keep
    Kenyan communities safe! Donate towards our mobile clinic – materials or cash – so we can reach many.
