Animal Nepal team vaccinated no less than 130 dogs at Swyambhunath area at the end of July 2016. Swayambhunath area located in the heart of Kathmandu valley is also a world heritage site of Nepal and popular destination for travelers both locals and foreigners. Being a popular destination for followers of Buddhism and Hinduism, the increasing number of animals living in this holy shrine needs to be protected. With the help of such activities, we also aim to develop future strategies of including Swyambhu into our Annual programme.
Animal Nepal plans to conduct a pilot Animal Birth Control (ABC) program at Swyambhunath and Shova Bhagwati area at the end of year 2016, where we plan to vaccinate and sterilize at least 100 stray dogs of the area, carry out community awareness raising activities, create a happy and healthy environment for both animals, locals and tourists at Swyambhunath.
