The bond between people and dogs is special

and this World Rabies Day, we’re celebrating that bond with Me and My Dog #TogetherAgainstRabies.

Alexander McCall Smith says, There are many dreadful things in this world that we can do nothing about – we can, however, do a lot about ridding the world of rabies. This cruel condition destroys the lives of animals and people, but is being combatted by the efforts of this wonderful charity, the Alliance for Rabies Control. Please help them in their magnificent work.

Join us by sharing your relationship with your dog with the world and help to spread the message that we can keep our families, including our dogs, safe from rabies by vaccinating our non-human companions!

I support the call for people to vaccinate their dogs and for governments to support canine vaccination for effective and humane rabies control.


Please help us to protect more dogs and people from rabies at our community-led project in Sorsogon, a rabies-endemic area in the Philippines – just $3 would vaccinate a dog.

All funds donated will go to vaccinate dogs in Sorsogon, Philippines.
