Kris' Meadow - Rabies Challenge Fund Inspiration and Mascot
"Meadow developed a malignant mast cell tumor directly on his rabies vaccination site (the syringe hole still visible in the tumor center). He was 6 years old at the time. After surgery removing part of his rear right thigh left dirty margins, his prospects for survival were not good. This event prompted me to investigate the canine rabies vaccine and develop The Rabies Challenge Fund. "

After receiving a 3 year rabies vaccine in 1998, Izzy began experiencing a variety of autoimmune issues that would plague her for the rest of her life. She was the most gentle, sweet soul and never let her problems get in the way of living a life filled with grace and love. She was an inspiration for a number of fundraisers for The Rabies Challenge Fund.

"This research will play a monumental role in the veterinary care of every dog. As a grassroots effort it needs everyone's support. Without it over vaccination will continue."
