The Liberia Animal Welfare & Conservation Society is a key player towards rabies elimination and responsible dog ownership programs in Liberia. Rabies has been confirmed in canines in Liberia and the presence and fear of this virus has serious implications for both humans and dogs. Reports of dog bites or rabies often leads to the mass killing of dogs by local authorities within communities.
Last year, the LAWCS rabies vaccination program saved the lives of 1500 dogs in Voinjama City that may have otherwise been killed because of suspected rabies cases in the area. This year, we hope to provide free rabies vaccinations to the same number of dogs in Kolba City, Lofa County during the celebration of World Rabies Day in September.
Donations through this GoFundMe will be received by Animal Kind International, a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which will disburse the funds to LAWCS.
