Tried and tested

Animal Welfare Organisations accept that Animal Birth Control (ABC) has been proven to be the only humane way of controlling the street dog population and eliminating rabies worldwide.

In many cities in India, Animal Birth Control (ABC) has completely eliminated rabies and dramatically reduced street dog populations.

We found Mango on the streets in March 2004, in a pitiful state. After much care and medical treatment, Mango made a full recovery and is today living proof of what can be achieved with compassion and determination.

Create a stable, rabies-free dog community
NRs 35,000, £ 300, or US$500

Animal Birth Control (ABC) is most effective when we work in a neighbourhood to sterilise every female street dog possible to stop uncontrolled breeding, and vaccinate every dog we collect to eliminate rabies. We then repeat the process in nearby community. Please enable us to create a healthy canine community. We will send you a report about the neighbourhood and our work there.
