Sponsor a Kennel for One Year
Every day, the Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre (KAT Centre) rescues sick, injured, and abused animals from the streets of Kathmandu. KAT’s staff bring them to the Centre, treat their ailments, and spay/neuter (sterilize) and vaccinate them. By sponsoring a kennel at the KAT Centre, you can support all the dogs who live in that kennel throughout the year. Your generosity will make an impact on dozens of animals in need. Your name will be put on a sign next to the kennel.
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. Some are abused by people. Most street dogs have no one to care for them, bring them to a vet, or pay the vet bills.
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.
