$10,000 Matching Gift to Rabies Challenge Fund

Two anonymous dog owners are making a generous $10,000 matching gift to The Rabies Challenge Fund.  From November 1st through December 31, these dog lovers will match every dollar donated up to $10,000. Please consider taking advantage of this charitable gift to double the amount of a donation.

The concurrent 5 and 7 year challenge studies being funded by The Rabies Challenge Fund have just entered their 5th year.  At the end of 2012, the first rabies challenge will occur. As part of the studies, Dr. Ronald Schultz of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine intends to establish a rabies titer standard for dogs in addition to determining the long-term duration of immunity of the rabies vaccine in canines.

During the past year, The Rabies Challenge Fund has been actively involved in rabies medical exemption legislation in New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and California.  On October 7, 2011, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a rabies medical exemption into law, becoming the 14th state to do so.
