Over 99% of human rabies cases are caused by an infected dog bite. Once symptoms of the disease develop, it is fatal.
Every year, millions of healthy dogs are inhumanely killed for fear of this deadly disease. However, this doesn't halt the spread of rabies, which causes the deaths of around 59,000 people a year – the majority of which are children under 15.
Mission Rabies is changing that.
Science shows that the most effective long-term rabies control strategy is through vaccination of dogs in endemic areas, so we head to rabies hotspots and run mass vaccination and education programmes - protecting both the human and canine populations.
Crucially, it's working. Human deaths in our key project sites have all but been eliminated and we'll keep going until it's zero all around the world.
Be a part of this life-saving mission!
In 2015 a global conference of Rabies stakeholders, including WHO, OIE and GARC, constructed a framework for the elimination of human deaths from dog-mediated rabies by 2030.
Rabies is 100% vaccine-preventable, we can and will eliminate Rabies.
Dogs Trust is delighted to be part of Mission Rabies. Rabies is a terrible disease that is 100% preventable and yet brings misery and death to many thousands of dogs and people worldwide.
Dogs Trust has been a proud partner of Mission Rabies from the outset and I have seen firsthand the incredible way that the initiative inspires people and brings them together to help eliminate rabies.Adrian Burder
