Let us work together to give all beings a better life.
To bring about a time where there are no more suffering street dogs in Nepal.
Street Dog Care aims to improve the health and living conditions of street dogs in Nepal, creating a healthier environment for all sentient beings.
Over 25 000 stray dogs wander the streets of the Kathmandu valley. Most of these dogs live in a miserable state, suffering from disease, malnourishment and ill treatment.
The Street Dog Care Camp was established in February 2009 at Boudha Stupa. Every Saturday the SDC Camp team, consisting of two local veterinarians and volunteers, treats street dogs for skin diseases, infections and injuries. Every dog is de-wormed and vaccinated against rabies. Dogs in serious condition are treated at a veterinary clinic and cared for at the Dog Care Centre until they are fit to go back to the street or to be adopted.
Since the camps are held in public areas,they have an important role in building community awareness and support. People are encouraged to bring sick and injured street dogs from their neighbourhoods.
Regular yearly rabies camps are performed.
In 2011 we vaccinated 200 dogs against rabies,
in 2012 we vaccinated 500 dogs against rabies,
in 2013 we vaccinated 800 dogs against rabies,
in 2014 we vaccinated 900 dogs against rabies and for the
year 2015 we plan to vaccinate 1000 dogs against rabies!
In order to care for dogs that are in need of long term treatment, Street Dog Care has set up a permanent Dog Care Centre. The main function of the SDC Dog Care Centre is to provide daily and intensive care for emergency cases, such as car accidents, severe infections and open wounds. The experience of the Street Dog Care Camp has shown that post-operation care is extremely difficult to provide to roaming dogs without a fixed home. The dogs are difficult to find and the healing process can therefore not be supervised and supported properly by the team.
