Keep Temple And Street Dogs Safe
The dogs rescued at our holding site near Myanmar are in great danger of contracting Distemper which is rife. Before our program was launched many dogs and puppies died every year from this deadly virus. The possibility of contracting Rabies is also a danger which the dogs must be protected from by annual vaccinations.
Last year ZERO dogs and puppies died and the continuation of our program will make sure this year the number is ZERO again.
Our Outreach team recently spent a successful day vaccinating 60 dogs and puppies. They were all well-behaved cos they knew treats were in-store and they trusted us. All the dogs and puppies are in much better condition since being in our program with the addition of good food and monthly de-tick treatments.
100 dogs vaccinated in a week. This is a continuation of our vaccination drive to keep over 400 dogs in our program safe.
We chose the most vulnerable dogs who live in Temples and on streets in an area where Distemper killed many feral dogs last year. In a week our Outreach team did a fantastic job again, with the help of dog-loving monks in several Temples who held the dogs still whilst being vaccinated.
Of utmost importance was keeping the puppies safe too. The Parvovirus is vicious killing young puppies in a few agonizing days. As both the Parvo and Distemper viruses can stay in the ground for a year it’s essential the dogs and puppies are well protected by our vaccination program.
