Children from local communities proudly display their vaccination cards during the 2016 LRVC
If we succeed in vaccinating 70% of Laikipia’s total dog population for three consecutive years, the disease will be eliminated in the canine population and, subsequently, in humans. But this will not be possible without your help. The 2017 LRVC is more important than ever and we are working to vaccinate 10,000 dogs before the end of this year.
An all-volunteer labour force of vets and university students will be combing Laikipia from November 3rd to December 9th (weekends only). 8 teams have been assembled and we’re looking for funds to help them reach many parts of Laikipia to reach our goal. To date, we’ve raised more than 50% of the Kshs 2.4M (USD$ 24, 000) needed to make this Rabies Vaccination Campaign a success.

Domestic dogs cause 98% of human rabies cases, passing the disease from wildlife to people. Your support will stop the disease before it can be transmitted to families, communities, and wildlife and will help accomplish Kenya’s 2030 vision of being an entirely rabies free nation.
