Published on

Mission Rabies and Dogs Trust have worked together with key local NGOs in world rabies hotspots to vaccinate over 250,000 dogs in the last 18months and educate over 300,000 children in how to interact with street dogs. This presentation seeks to illustrate some of the Mission Rabies flagship projects, the NGO’s involved and provide some tips as to how your shelter/NGO can integrate a humanitarian component which will strengthen and champion the objective of increasing moral perception towards animals in local communities – as well as boost the profile of your organisation.
