On the 21st of May, 2018, RESQ CHARITABLE TRUST was granted authorisation to officially visit the PMC's Animal Birth Control (ABC) facilities daily to vaccinate against Rabies and affix a Rabies Collar (colour-coded riveted collar) on every dog caught for ABC. RESQ uses a high-quality Anti-Rabies Vaccine which is known to provide fast immunity (within 3 weeks) and maintains vaccine efficacy for 3 years. As a result, the streets of Pune will be safer for both humans and animals when protected from Rabies. In a city that is witnessing an ever-escalating street dog population, this will also grant our citizens a sense of safety -- when you see a street dog with a Green Collar (as in the pictures above), you can be assured that it is vaccinated and safe, and is less likely to chase, bite, or engage in aggressive pack behaviour.We at RESQ strongly believe that a Mass Anti-Rabies Vaccination Programme such as this will solve a number of our city's pressing issues. Using a high-quality vaccine is a more efficient use of resources as it will eliminate the need for annual re-vaccinations, while Collaring will act as an additional check for the PMC to monitor that the city's ABC programme remains goal-oriented.But we can't do it all without your help. RESQ is conducting this initiative voluntarily and free-of-cost in an effort to minimise mounting human-animal conflict by reducing Rabies incidence and dog bites, and providing Pune's citizens with a sense of security. We greatly rely on the support of this wonderful community to fund the work we do -- and this time, it's not just for the animals. This activity greatly benefits the citizens of Pune, too!Rs. 500 can vaccinate and collar approximately 5 animals.Rs. 1000 can vaccinate and collar 10 dogs, and so on. This covers the cost of the vaccine (purchased at subsidised rates) and collar, and does not include additional costs such as human resource, petrol, and vehicle maintenance. In the last 3 days alone, we have vaccinated and collared nearly 200 dogs. Imagine what a huge difference we could make in a year!You can make a direct, positive impact towards human-animal coexistence in our city. Please help us make the streets of our city safer by contributing to this project.
