Help prevent a horrific death for a Zimbabwean dog.
Rabies is a fatal viral disease that is prevalent in poor rural communities throughout Africa. Infected dogs suffer horribly, and if bitten by a rabid dog, rabies can cause an excruciating death for human beings, as well. In southeastern Zimbabwe, rabies is widespread. If not controlled, the disease will continue to cause needless deaths among domestic dogs, people and Zimbabwe's precious wildlife, especially the African wild dog.
Thankfully, the African Wildlife Conservation Fund (AWCF) is on the ground in Zimbabwe working diligently to stop rabies. A gift of $1.50 allows them to vaccinate one domestic dog against rabies. AWCF is aiming to vaccinate 10,000 every year until they can locally eradicate the disease. Each $1.50 donation pays for the vaccine, deworming medication and the cost of administering the vaccine in remote rural areas.
You can help. For only $1.50, you can help save a dog's life!
The African Wildlife Conservation Fund aims to conserve healthy large carnivore populations in Zimbabwe through a holistic approach that includes, community engagement and upliftment, mitigation of direct threats to wildlife, education, policy dialogue and management driven research.
