Dear Supporters, 

It's been a busy few months with a higher number of rescues that usual. Our most recent is Spotty, pictured above, he came to us from the streets of Chaubiskothi, Bharatpur. He has a massive laceration around his neck and at first glance it looked like a knife wond. It turns our someone had but a rubber band on his neck that has cut through the flesh of his neck causing the lacereation. The team removed the rubber and cleaned him up with a few stiches and he has now made a full recovery. He will be neutered and vaccinated against rabies next week and then will join his other fur-friends looking for adoption. 

Funding permitted which comes from the incredible donations you make we have plans for the following outreach activities:  

Upcoming Satellite Neutering Camps 
a. Birtamod town.
b. Madi village
c. Kawasoti village.
Two of the three neutering camps will be conducted in partnership with the respective Municipalities. We will provide technical support (staff, equipment, motors to transport animals and will cover 50% of the medical supply cost. Where as the partner local authority will sponsor 50% of the medical supply cost which allows our donated funds to go much further so we really do value these partnerships with the local authority .
In Birtamod town we are expecting to at least neuter 50 female dogs. A local lady has been feeding these community dogs and has reached out to our team and has helped with some local funding to assist with this event as our funds are a little tight. 
We will then funding permitted atend the other two locations but these camps will need to be done before the monsoon. We are aiming to conduct camps
Mass Antirabies Vaccination (MARV) and Dog Census Campaigns.
Our team conducts annual MARV in two cities of Nepal, Pokhara and Bharatpur. We use application to record the data. The app has inbuilt calculator to get population estimate of the area as well as to check whether or not the 70% threshold vaccination is met.
Likewise, the Dog Census is being conducted in Pokhara now.
Both these campaigns gives us baseline data of the percentage of dogs that our team has sterilised so far in the city, as well as to gauge the health condition of the free roaming dogs living in the vicinity.
Busy times ahead and we really value your support!

Introduction 

The situation for strays in Nepal is truly horrifying and would be enough to upset anyone. Not only are these animals suffering from disease and the local authority poisoning campaigns but they also have no veterinary help and have to scavenge for food and water..

Report 

By neutering, vaccinating and treating street animals we produce a healthy dog and cat population that locals can respect and care for properly. By working with local authorities repeating core programmes that tackle this issue through spading, protecting and providing emergency care for stray animals, we will enable the continuation of programmes that have helped thousands of animals. With your support, we aim to roll this project out to wider communities and villages. It costs $15 for an anti rabies vaccine.

 

Our local school is registered as a non profit and provides children with a safe and nurturing education full of rich opportunities to learn. We provide a diverse, multicultural and non-discriminating approach, where differing needs, cultures and abilities are respected and valued within inclusive learning environments.

 

Thank you for your support

Dear Friends and Family of Action Change,

 

It's been a very busy few months for us and we have lots to share! We hav spent the last quarter on th road and setting up satalite camps, it's been an outstanding success but upon return our team needed a much earned break. 

September 28th is World Rabies Day and like every year we wanted to do a big outreach event so we headed to the community of Sauraha where we ran a 3 day 'free' Rabies vaccine program and we used this opportunity for street dogs neutered program too. Over the 3 days a total of 130 dogs was given a free rabies vaccine funded by our donors and 30 of them also goot their neuter operation too. After these 3 days our team moved to Kalabang, Gharedi where they setup the next camp and we had a toal of 41 vaccinations compleed that included both dogs and cats. In the Nepali community, dogs are preferred as pets so we were plesently surprised to see so many cats being part of the families and being brought along. 

After a short cultural break our team setup camp in Sindupalchowk were a total of 229 dogs were neutered, Among them, 152 were male and 77 female. We also was able to vaccinate all 229 dogs at the same time for rabies. After this 5 day event the team packed up and headed to Okhaldhunga leaving at 6.30am. It was a long day for the team as it took over 10 hours to reach the next location due to one of the outreach vehicles broke down while crossing a river. However upon arrival we setup and welcomes another 106 dogs to be neutered and vacinated. 

Our team went on to 4 other sites again meeting over 300 dogs and so it really has been a successful 3 months. Medical supplies are now running low along with our travel budget so as we head home it is time for us to work hard on our fundraising so we can continue our work. We are delighted with the support of the communties with our project and next year we hope to also start building a new animal rescue centre in Pokhara. 

For this reason we kindly request that you help us by sharing our updates and projects with friends and family and remember rather than buying someone a dog for christmas this year, you can make more puppies happy with a simple donation to our cause. 

 

Thank you again for your Support,

HART Project Team, Nepal

Introduction 

The situation for strays in Nepal is truly horrifying and would be enough to upset anyone. Not only are these animals suffering from disease and the local authority poisoning campaigns but they also have no veterinary help and have to scavenge for food and water. Government institutions in Nepal give no assistance to animal welfare and there are no other animal welfare charities working in our partner areas, so our project is the only opportunity for help for these dogs and cats.
