John Gitonga (in a black hat) from LWF, leads a team of volunteers in marking centres as well public announcements about the ongoing vaccination campaign.
The Laikipia Rabies Vaccination Campaign (LRVC) 2017 has now been on the road for three weeks and we cannot be grateful enough to all the volunteers and support from stakeholders and participating County Governments for making the campaign successful thus far. Launched at the Mpala Research Centre earlier this month by Laikipia’s CEC of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Dr. Lucy Murugi, and Director (of the same Ministry) Dr. Thuo Mathenge, the LRVC 2017 set out to vaccinate 10, 000 dogs and cats across Laikipia with a primary focus of vaccinating animals from pastoralist communities.
We now stand at: Over 3, 800 dogs and cats have been vaccinated and over 30 communities around Laikipia’s vast lands have been visited. We still have 2 more weekends to go and we are optimistic that we will reach our goal with your continued support.

Laikipia Wildlife Forum will be working with the LRVC, led by Mpala Research Centre, and will keep you up to date on this very important initiative.
Rabies is an almost invariably fatal disease for both humans and animals. Vaccination of domestic animals is a critical step that we should all participate in for the protection of domestic animals, our already fragile wildlife population and most importantly, public health.
