Red Collar Campaign
Our friends at the World Society for
the Protection of Animals (WSPA) are promoting their Red Collar campaign to
help prevent the senseless killing of dogs by many communities who use this
brutal method as a means to prevent the spread of rabies. According to WSPA, twenty million dogs are killed every year and
fear of rabies is often used as the excuse; however, killing dogs in
response to rabies has never been shown to eliminate the disease. Rabies is
completely preventable through vaccination and WSPA’s Collars Not Cruelty Campaign, a global initiative, is establishing
dog vaccination programs in countries where dogs are killed in response to
WSPA protects all dogs by vaccinating and identifying them with red
collars. This way the community knows which dogs are rabies-free.
Please help us help WSPA convince the world to replace cruelty with red
collars: a symbol of vaccination, safety and hope by supporting them with a
donation. For more information or to make a donation, click here.
