First Day of Mass Rabies Vaccination programme in Kabul, Afghanistan

11 August 2017

"On Sunday 6th August the first ever mass rabies vaccination programme for dogs started in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Mayhew International has been working with Kabul City authorities to plan and implement an animal welfare strategy encompassing a mass rabies vaccination and a humane Trap Vaccinate Neuter and Release (TVNR) programme.

At the beginning of the year (January 22nd), Mayhew signed a landmark agreement so that Kabul City authorities halted the cruel practice of culling street dogs through strychnine poisoning, a slow and very painful death for the dogs. Ever since, Mayhew’s Afghanistan Country Director, Dr. Abdul-Jalil Mohammadzai DVM, has been busy setting up our NGO facilities and working with the Government and city authorities there to introduce and implement a long-term and sustainable animal welfare strategy."
