Over 95% of human deaths due to rabies occur in Africa and Asia where exposure to infected domestic dogs is the most common source of disease for people.

BUT… Rabies can be prevented through vaccination and education!

The Alliance for Rabies Control is a non-profit organization working to fight rabies all over the world through education and prevention.
