Peace Corps volunteer’s dog will not be deported to Africa, US government says

WASHINGTON — Socrates was due to be deported to Ghana, according to his owner, thanks to an expired rabies vaccine.

The 5-year-old dog, Socrates (pronounced So-crates not soc-ra-tes), had been held at JFK International airport the last several days due to an expired rabies vaccine and a paperwork mix-up. The dog was scheduled to soon be deported back to Africa by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC].
