October 25, 2011 – Dogs spoiled on the occasion on Kukur Tihar

Each year, during Kukur Tihar or Dog Worship, Animal Nepal honours the dogs at its shelter and pets brought by friends. On October 25, mangy dog Lalu was the first to be garlanded and feted on a boiled egg and sweets. According to Animal Nepal, Kathmandu’s pet and stray dogs continue to live a life of neglect and abuse. “Kukur Puja is a perfect occasion to promote responsible pet ownership in Nepal. Dogs on this day are worshipped and treated well – something we like to see happening every day of the year,” says programme manager Krishna Singh.
In the presence of 25 well wishers board member Shobha Rajamayi launched two booklets on the care of puppies and adult dogs, Animal Nepal will use these in its community education programme to increase people’s understanding of nutrition, treatment and general management of dogs.
