Vets Beyond Borders SARAH Project Appeal
VBB’s Sikkim Anti-Rabies and Animal Health (SARAH) project activities involve canine rabies vaccination, humane dog population control, community education and treatment of sick and injured animals.
In the 2016- 2017 season, the SARAH program desexed approximately 7,083 animals, administered 35,948 doses of Anti-Rabies Vaccine and 290 doses of Distemper vaccine. Hundreds of sick and injured domestic animals and wildlife were also treated and received medical, surgical and hospital care.
There’s still more work to do if we are to ever eliminate dog-mediated human rabies in India. We are calling out for more volunteer vets and vet nurses to support VBB VetMatch and VetTrain programs. If you would like to volunteer, please email email@example.com.
We also need funds for the care of sick and injured street dogs through the purchase of medical and surgical supplies in Sikkim, and to vaccinate street dogs for rabies, as well as to run public education programs.
