“There is this family of 3 tan and 1 black puppies with healthy tan mommy I have been concerned about living at Maya Devi temple since I arrived in Lumbini over a month ago. Today we treated this special family and likely the father too (black) who was hanging out with them. This feels wonderful!” says Bodi Sakyadita (Lori Dawn Forster), a nun from LSSF.
In collaboration with Lumbini Social Service Foundation (LSSF) ANimal Nepal conducted a 3-days mobile clinic was conducted where Animal Nepal team along with local volunteers covered Padaria village, Parsa and the areas inside and outside the main monastery of Lumbini. The camp treated a total of 155 animals where 59 of them were treated on the first day following 50 and 46 animals on the second and third day respectively. Among the treated ones 72 were the puppies, 81 adult dogs and 2 cats.
With no proper animal support group and organization, increasing dog population had led serious issues for the locals and visitors in the area. Dogs suffering from mange and other deadly diseases roaming around the territory and was another serious concern. In response to which Animal Nepal conducted a treatment and vaccination camp for the support for the Lumbini beings.
