Many people will already know of this fund, which is trying to raise money to do a study that would, hopefully, prove that rabies injections last for far longer than what is currently required by authorities. There has always been much concern about over vaccinating for rabies, but in areas with rabies, vaccination is a serious public health concern for humans. That is why definitive evidence is needed to be able to drop the requirements for frequency of vaccination. This is a good project to support and right now even the smallest donation will be doubled thanks to this anonymous donor–so it may be a good time to send a little cash their way, if you are able.

$10,000 MATCHING GIFT
Between September 1 and November 30, 2010, donations made to the
Rabies Challenge Fund will be matched by an anonymous donor, dollar
for dollar, up to $10,000! Please note that all cash gifts under
$1,000 will be matched until $10,000 is reached. The donor makes this
request so that the challenge will remain open longer to enable more
small donors to participate.

Charlotte's note: this may be a great way to have some end of the
year tax deductions that benefit both you and the dogs you love.

Sounds like a grrreat idea, Karlin. Two of my gang are rabies-vaccinated for Pet Passports, so I have a vested interest in reducing the amount of vaccine if it is still safe so to do.

Will send them a donation today :smile:
