Spay a Street Dog in Nepal
Enable the Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre to spay a stray dog and vaccinate her from rabies. The stray dog will live at the Centre for three or four days so the KAT centre's vets can ensure she is healthy before she is released back to her neighborhood.
The City of Kathmandu, Nepal is home to more than 20,000 street dogs. They are commonly afflicted with injuries from collisions with cars, starvation, open sores with maggot infections, severe skin problems such as mange, and infectious ailments. The root of the problem is that there are far too many street dogs. One female dog can have more than 12 puppies every year! Spaying street dogs is the most effective and humane way to reduce the dog population and protect people against rabies.
About Kathmandu Animal Treatment Center
Partner since February, 2012
The mission of the Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre is to create a healthy, stable street dog population and eliminate rabies in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal.
The Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre (KAT Centre) was first conceived after Jan Salter, the founder of KAT, visited the organization Help in Suffering in Jaipur, India. Impressed with the way this and other animal welfare organizations have managed difficult street dog problems and eliminated rabies through Animal Birth Control (ABC) and widespread rabies vaccinations, Jan came back to Nepal convinced Kathmandu, Nepal can become a rabies-free, dog-friendly city. The KAT Centre was registered as a non-profit, charitable animal welfare organization in 2003. The Centre officially opened its doors on 9 May 2004 and it has grown steadily since then.
