Kavrepalanchok - Dog Population Management (DPM) and Rabies Eradication Program

Dog Population Management (DPM)

World Health Organization (WHO) has listed Nepal as the highly potential risky nation for Rabies Transmission. Dog Population Management have been very recently practiced in Nepal. Authorities used to poison the dogs for controlling its population. Many organizations are established for DPM in capital city Kathmandu, but very few organization take action and operate in DPM. Street Dogs are the main causes of noise pollution, fecal contamination, road accidents and dog bites. Unmanaged garbages and availability of habitat are the main causes of growth in street dog population.

With reference to our sample census, using anroid mobile application which track GPS location of the dog counted in the survey, there are 5 dogs per 100 people in Kavrepalanchok District. The male and female ratio is 60:40 respectively. It gives us the clear estimation of 19,500 street dogs in Kavrepalanchowk District. We will start with for 20 first, then 100 and continue till we spay/neuter the whole population. These dogs are never vaccinated and medically treated as there is no organization working for them except NAWRC. There are various cases of dogs attacking small children, students and abandoned calves observed and noticed from public information. Over population of Street Dogs are causing human harms on them, as people throw acids, hot water and sharp weapons on dogs when they come closer. Authorities receive public pressures on dog population management and there is risk of poisoning or shifting dogs to other locations/jungle areas for getting rid of the problems.

We are trying to bring municipalities and District Livestock Service Office (DLSO) in practicing the DPM in Kavre. We are doing the Catch-Neuter-Vaccinate-Release (CNVR) Program to control unnecessary breeding of street dogs and help reduce their suffering in street.

For sapying a dog, we need $25 for each surgery. Our wish list for the support is available nawrc_bnp_cnvr-budgt.pdf Please, check the list and help us get the things. Your Donation of supplies or money value will make us continue this program and save thousands of street dogs in need.

Since NAWRC started its Catch-Neuter-Vaccinate-Monitor-Release (CNVMR) and Mass Anti-Rabies Vaccination Program in differernt parts of the district, the evidences of Rabid cases has been noticed to be increased rapidly. It shows that whole district is under high risk of Rabies. We are trying our best to get funds to extend our program in larger volume and more result oriented Approaches. Since we started the program, 9 cases of Rabies infection are noticed and all of them are originated from DOG BITE. It shows that the free roaming dogs population in this district are host of Rabies and have high risk to our school children, who walk closer with dogs never vaccinated.
