Global inter-governmental organisations have officially launched their framework to end dog-mediated rabies in humans by 2030 using our humane solutions.
This week the World Health Organisation (WHO), World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and our partners the Global Alliance for the Control of Rabies (GARC) hosted a conference in Switzerland and have announced their framework for eliminating rabies by 2030, which includes the mass vaccination of dogs. This framework represents the biggest step forward to date towards the global protection of dogs from rabies and cruel culling programmes.
Saving millions of dogs
95% of human rabies cases are transmitted by dog bites. To eliminate human rabies, the focus must be on eliminating dog rabies.

Dogs were bred by man as tools and for amusement. The rise in population of dogs is linked intrinsically to that of the human species (my real point) and while we stubbornly refuse to address that issue, our self-inflicted problems will also balloon exponentially.That article is about the UK though, we don't have rabies here so it isn't really relevant to the OP.
