In Sri Lanka, tens of thousands of dogs were gassed and killed.
HOW A COLLAR HELPS:
In response to Colombo’s 1990s rabies epidemic, 1/3 of the city’s dogs were gassed to death, but this didn’t stop the rabies problem. Working with local partners, WSPA proved mass vaccination is more effective and humane. The killing has stopped in Colombo, but dogs in other cities are still at risk.
