This is the site of the STREET DOGS OF NEPAL[SDON] rescue centre in Naicap, Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.
The situation is critical there for dogs who live on the streets. It is a poor country which makes it worse for the dogs who have to survive on rubbish and who are prone to diseases which develop large tumors on their bodies.
We have a small centre in the Kathmandu Valley for the last few years since 2006 which is funded from Ireland. There are four staff members and the Para Vet Rai Dhanraj manages our small centre.
It has been maintained by donations raised mainly in Ireland and the UK and costs between 5000 to 6000euro minimun annually to mantain. We have four paid employees.
Money is very tight as donations have literally dried up with the current recession. We need to keep going for to help these unfortunate dogs, many the victim of untold cruelty like Houmer who had his leg chopped off.
No legaslation or protection for street dogs exists in Nepal hence the animal abusers act with impunity.
OUR NEW SITE:
Our new rented site will have to be furnished with cabins, kennels and all of the other items needed. We have the basics, table, presses, cookers, dog collars, etc but costs are ongoing. Work will progress when the rainy season ends. I will be returning to Nepal later this year to oversee building progress and developments.Nepal's street dogs are mostly surviving on rubbish strewn at the roadsides.They are suseptable to vaginal and other tumors. Many are found dragging their bodies due to broken bones and severe malnutrition.The vast majority suffer severe mange and other skin disorders due to lack of water, food, and no verterinary care.
Slaughter on the streets by Hindus as part of the Hindu religion is crude and brutal. Also relevant is Irish organisations like Bother who sends cows, sheep and goats out to these countries where the animals suffer horrendously from neglect, abuse, hunger and a brutal death by having their throat cut in roadside temples, and then being left to die struggling as their life flows away. Nepal is a very beautiful country, for the most part the Nepalese are gentle and kind. Like every other country it has a cruel side ,as always the non-human animals are always the victims. Man’s insistence on violating the rights of other beings on this planet will have to be opposed to end this suffering. A sincere Thank you to all who have helped us, especially Sharon in the UK and Sheila in Ireland.The following quote is from the local Kathmandu newspaper;
'Kathmandu metropolitan City has been killing about 10,000 dogs annually for 50 years. These bodies were buried in an undisclosed location. Locals got so upset about the burial, they even followed the KMC staff and forced them to dig up the bodies....Please note that the people were not upset about dogs being killed, just about the religious pollution caused by burial of dead dogs close to their home'
