WVS Thailand and Mission Rabies Team up for Pai Outreach Clinic

Fri 6th Jul 2018

Last month WVS Thailand were supporting our sister charity Mission Rabies in a massive vaccination campaign to combat rabies in the greater Chiang Mai region. 

Because of our great working relationship with the Pai community, in particular with Pai Four-Legged Friends, we dedicated the final week of the campaign to Pai with its sizable cat and dog population.

Whilst Mission Rabies roamed the streets in search of pets and strays to vaccinate, we were also able to continue the ongoing sterilisation drive with another free spay and neuter clinic near the centre of town. We set up the clinic and our vets got to work!

With the outstanding support of local volunteers and residents, we exceeded our goal and were able to vaccinate over 1,000 animals and sterilise 227 animals in the course of our five-day stay. 

It was once again a fantastic experience for our WVS team who have been conducting sterilisation clinics in Pai on six previous occasions. Also, our colleagues from Mission Rabies were absolutely thrilled with the support and generous hospitality we received from Pai Four-Legged Friends and its members. It has been another wonderful opportunity for WVS and Mission Rabies to work together to improve animal welfare and power forward in the fight against rabies.

Thanks to the wonderful partnership we enjoy with community and business leaders, Pai is well on its way to becoming a showcase for effective stray animal population control and for protecting animals and residents from the risks of rabies. 

We look forward to lots more projects together in the future!!
