Patan, September 28, 2014– As part of our each year programme on World Rabies Day, Animal Nepal this year too vaccinated 86 dogs with anti-rabies vaccination from different wards surrounding Patan Durbar Square. Each year AN conducts vaccination camp at Patan Durbar Square premises which continued this year too. Our aim is to turn the Patan’s Durbar Square into a rabies free ‘zone’ which is a World Heritage Site adorned with beautiful temples and home to countless stray dogs.
Last year our vaccination camp had vaccinated more than 50 dogs from the Patan area. And as part of our vaccination programme we also managed to inform and educate the locals about the importance of Anti rabies vaccination. They received education materials and information about the rabies virus. Through our humane dog management programme and events such as World Rabies Day Animal Nepal hopes to bring a lasting change in the lives of Nepal’s strays.
