The Rabies Challenge Fund is a great way to help change how often rabies vaccination and other vaccines are given in the veterinary field. Studies have shown that our pets are being over vaccinated, which leads to health problems in the long run such as autoimmune diseases. The Rabies Challenge fund mission is to determine how long animals have immunity against rabies, so they can determine how frequently the vaccine should be administered. Right now, they are working on their fifth year of studying immunity to rabies. Help them make it to year six and seven. And hopefully, we can change the vaccination protocol to protect the health of our pets.Check out their website and spread the word.
