Dharamshala — Tibet Charity, a local nonprofit in Dharamshala, observed the 10th World Rabies Day today, September 28, in a local and international effort to eliminate the rabies disease.

In an effort to promote awareness and prevention, Tibet Charity held the event at the Tibet Welfare Society, and attending were over 80 locals, including special guests Danyi Tsegyal, Secretary of the Tibetan Department of Health, and Indian representative Dr. Ajay, assistant Director of the Animal Husbandry Department.

Rabies is a viral infection that is almost always fatal, and the worst rabies cases are within India and Africa.

As prevention is key to eliminating the disease, Tibet Charity gives free rabies vaccines to dogs at their facility.
