Closed A festive season for all: Help strays - neuter, medical aid and food

An aid project by “Förderverein KAT ” (gabriele g.) in Kathmandu, Nepal

Dear Donors,

25,000 stray dogs live in Kathmandu. Many are in a wretched state, sick, uncared for and starving. These dogs roam through the streets, live in garbage dumps and infect the children of Nepal through their bites. E
ach year about 200 people in Nepal die from rabies, and it is a gruesome death. (By pressing the “News” button you can play an informative video.)

The Nepalese government has tried poisoning the stray dogs, but this has proven to be ineffective because it only temporarily decreased the dog population and the remaining dogs were not vaccinated. The animals suffered for hours before they died and the poisonous bait endangered the children playing nearby. The carcasses were then disposed of in rivers, thereby polluting the very waters on which the human population depends.

In 2004 Jan Salter (MBE), at the age of 68, founded KAT out of her own savings in order to ameliorate this suffering.

KAT (the Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre) is a non-governmental organization and receives no state funds. It is recognized as a charitable organization by Nepal as well as by England and Germany, and it is completely dependent on private contributions.

KAT catches stray dogs, sterilizes them and immunizes them against rabies. The animals are then returned to their neighborhoods after two days. Unfortunately some animals cannot be returned because they have been weakened by age, illness or accidents. In such cases the KAT provides the necessary veterinary care. In May 2014 I worked at the KAT Center for two and a half weeks.
In 2016 I`d returned, please have a look in the News.
The treatment rooms are sparsely equipped, lacking many of the basics. There are no diagnostic devices. (Photos of my stay can be seen by moving the cursor over the picture at the top.)
I ask most sincerely for your donations and your help in the dissemination of this appeal for help.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,Gabriele
