Education and awareness
We believe that public acceptance is critical to the success of the sterilization
programme. Our Education programme reaches out to different sections of the public and explains the benefits of sterilizing
dogs. It is also an important tool in the rabies eradication project, as we use it to communicate important information about
rabies and its prevention.
We use the following methods to spread this message:
Slide presentations to schools on dog-care, rabies prevention, the stray dog
issue and dog population control.
Chart presentations on dog bite and rabies prevention for municipal
Slide presentations to groups such as Rotaract Clubs, Rotary Clubs,
and citizens groups
Rabies awareness drives in public places such as railway stations and parks.
Leaflets on rabies in English, Hindi and Marathi, distributed free at all WSD
Posters, hoardings, leaflets, press ads, cinema slides.
Stalls at events such as college festivals, exhibitions, fairs and dog-shows.
Information panels are displayed at our outlets and leaflets are distributed. On an average we take part in two or three
events every month. We also organize sales of our specially designed products in corporate offices; this provides
additional opportunities to spread awareness.
