ABC programme reduces number of dogs 

Survey shows 65% decrease in dogs inside our working area

A WSPA supported survey shows a sharp decrease in the number of stray dogs in Animal Nepal’s working area.  The population decreased with 64%  in 6 years time. Animal Nepal has been conducting a humane dog management programme in Lalitpur since 2008.

"Animal Nepal is grateful to find that its approach works and the suffering of canines has been greatly reduced"

The number of dogs in Patan (Block D) went down from 7527 in 2006 to 4560 in 2010, and further decreased to 2738 in 2012.
The survey further showed that the population in Kathmandu district is no longer increasing and has become stable. The 2012 dog survey was conducted by volunteers from Animal Nepal, Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre and Roots and Shoots Nepal.
Animal Nepal launched its humane dog population programme in December 2008, and has conducted various Animal Birth Control/Anti Rabies and CNVR (Catch Neuter Vaccinate Release) camps in Lalitpur district since then. Over 1900 female dogs have been spayed, treated and vaccinated.

October 4 celebrated with Walk for Animals

World Animal Day was celebrated in style with a Walk for Animals. Organised by Animal Welfare Network Nepal (AWNN), the walkathon attracted over 200 participants. While raising funds for Animal Nepal’s outreach work, the participants called for a halt to animal cruelty in Nepal.

The walk was from Basantapur Durbar Square to Patan Durbar Square, a distance of 6.5 km. Despite the drizzling rain, the participants had fun showing their playcards and shouting slogans.
AWNN awarded four persons as “Local Animal Welfare Hero” as a respect to them towards their commitment in different animal welfare initiatives. Krishna Mani Baral, from Animal Rights Nepal of Pokhara, Samjhana KC from Lalitpur, Bishwo Maskey from Boudha and Ram Newar from Kupondole received the award.
