76 dogs spayed and vaccinated. Ten sick or injured dogs treated. That was the outcome of the ‘Save the Dogs of Pharping’ programme, a Catch, Neuter, Vaccinate and Release (CNVR) programme focusing on Pharping, Dakchinkali and nearby villages. Community members, including Shedra members, donated Rs 71,000 to support the camp.
For the first time Animal Nepal organised a CNVR camp at its shelter in Chobar. Normally such camps are held within the community. The advantage of doing the surgery at the Chobar Animal Sanctuary was that more dogs could be spayed and treated in a short time, due to the presence of stronger support team.
Four dogs from Afaldol were found to have eye problems due to cancer or cataract and were kept for treatment.
Paravets Hari Krishna, Shankar,Tara and Radika helped the Chobar staff members Ishwori, Hari, Mohan, Rabin, Sangita. The surgeries were conducted by Surendra, Sushma, Sudeep and a number of volunteer vets. Animal Nepal likes to thank the team and Norbu Kalden and Lisa for coordinating the fundraising.
