Kathmandu, January, 2016– With a kind support from Mayhew International, our new isolation unit is finally complete. For a treatment center like ours who rescues and treats no less than 1000 dogs every year, an isolation setup was vital for the prevention of illness in animals.

Our isolation ward consists of 10 kennels which have a separate room for mange, cancer dogs and dogs with other communicable diseases. The kennels are built in such a way that they are easy to clean and disinfect. Special ventilation system has been applied in order to help control spreading of diseases. The care takers and shelter workers are provided with gloves and boots which they can use while cleaning the area. Furthermore, the area will be disinfected on a regular basis to help prevent potentially infectious diseases. More

Educating School Students for a Better Tomorrow!

Kathmandu, December, 2016– At Animal Nepal we believe, education is the key. Since animal welfare is an evolving concept in our country the community and especially the kids still needs to be educated about its importance and long-term impact. Schools from Kathmandu are often invited to our treatment center and sanctuaries where they learn about the programmes and the issues of stray dogs and other animals. This way most schools in Patan are already introduced to our Animal Birth Control and Anti Rabies programme and the suffering of stray dogs in general. However, we aim to make it bigger and better by taking our school education programme to a whole new level in coming days. To make this possible we conducted education programmes in two different schools of Pharping and Lumbini during our CNVR camp in the area. More

Nepalgunj, October 2016– We strongly believe that human welfare and animal welfare are interconnected and based on this theory, Animal Nepal team went to Nepalgunj to support the equine users group in best possible ways. We realized that their poor socio-economic condition is the root cause of animal abuse. Besides equine business is the least respected business in their community. To change this, Animal Nepal registered an equine user group and also initiated a micro saving programme for them which will be further supported by AN each month. We aim to conduct a rapid community education programme for equine owners and handlers under our project year 2017 to make ever lasting changes in the lives of both human and animal. More
