To create a society free of Rabies and to develop sustainable solutions for the mental wellness of children


To raise awareness about rabies prevention and implement rabies camps for the underserved communities.

What is Our Mission ?

Rabies Free India is a project by Dr. Shampur Madhusudhana Trust (Regd.) which was founded in 2017 with one aim, eliminate Rabies in India. Over 99% of human rabies cases are caused by an infected dog bite. Once symptoms of the disease develop, it is 100% fatal.

Every year, Rabies causes the deaths of around 60,000 people – the majority of which are children under 15. Beginning our journey in India, where a third of the global human Rabies deaths occur, we run Awareness Programs in rural, semi-urban and low-income schools and communities.

Rabies Free India is going to change that. Rabies is 100% preventable. We are working to prevent needless deaths from this devastating disease.

Rabies Facts & Preventions

Key Facts

  • Rabies is a serious disease that is caused by a Bullet-Shaped Virus.
  • Any mammal can get rabies. It can only be passed to another animal or a person through saliva. You cannot get rabies from blood.
  • Rabies got its name from a Latin word that means "to rage". That´s because animals with rabies sometimes act as if they are angry.

Key Facts

  • Rabies attacks the brain and spinal cord. If it is not prevented, it will cause death.
  • Animals with rabies may act differently. It´s always best to stay away from wild animals and to be careful with other people´s pets.
  • Rabies is 100% preventable. Animals can be vaccinated and people who have been bitten can receive vaccines to fight the disease.
  • Half of the people who die from rabies are under the age of 15.

Key Facts

  • Rabies is a big problem in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
  • In the United States, rabies has been reported in every state except Hawaii.
  • Rabies is almost always fatal once the symptoms appear.
  • If you are bitten, have someone help you wash out the wound for five minutes with soap and water and then take you right away to a doctor. If there´s a chance the animal has rabies, your doctor will want to give you the rabies vaccine to make sure you don´t get rabies, too.

To prevent rabies:

  • Vaccinate your dogs, cats and ferrets against rabies;
  • Keep your pets under your supervision so they don´t catch rabies from a wild animal;
  • Don't handle wild animals and if you see one acting strangely, call your local animal control officer;
  • If you're bitten by an animal, wash the wound with soap and water for at least five minutes, and then go see your doctor; and
  • Have your pets spayed or neutered so they'll be more likely to stay home.
