A real cause to celebrate...
Since 2003, the Afya Serengeti project has ensured the safety of thousands of pets and families in the Serengeti.
People in the Serengeti depend on their pets for hunting, protection, and security. Their relationship is one of necessity and companionship. Since the inception of the Afya Serengeti project, human hospitalizations due to rabid dog bites have reduced by 92%1, rabies has been virtually eliminated from the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro district, and African wild dog populations in the park have increased each year by 17%.2
Despite the great strides that have been made each day, there are still thousands of African families that face the death of a pet or a family member due to an untreated rabies infection. The continued support of veterinary professionals and pet owners around the world is crucial in keeping the Afya Serengeti project going. Join the cause to fight rabies today.
