World Rabies Day is a global effort to raise awareness in
support of animal and human rabies prevention. This day was set
aside to educate people around the globe about the impact of
rabies, how it can be prevented, and how to eliminate the sources
that contribute to the death of 55,000 humans from rabies
The student AVMA chapter at Texas A&M currently has 100
percent student membership. The SCAVMA's goals for this event are
twofold: First, SCAVMA would like to vaccinate up to 300 dogs or
cats in Bryan/College Station for rabies to protect both the
animals and the people of the community. Second, the students aim
to educate the public about basic animal health topics such as
vaccination protocols, heartworm disease, and the advantages of
spaying or neutering your pet.
Come out to keep your pet healthy and participate in the many
other pet and family friendly activities at Saint Francis Fest!
