Unity and Participation For Street Dogs of Pasupatinath Temple
Catch-Neuter-Vaccinate-Release (CNVR) is the human way to control the population of free roaming street dogs."No babies, no rabies" is Himalayan Animal Rescue Trust (HART)'s mission and "Community, Compassion, Care" is Nepal Animal Welfare and Research Center (NAWRC)'s mission. With collaboration to Pasupaninath Area Development Trust(PADT) and other organizations of Kathmandu Valley, NAWRC and HART is organizing a campaign where more than 200 free roaming strays will get medical services, anti-rabies vaccine and female will be spayed to control unmanageable litters of babies of them.
The program will start from 19th of February, 2016 to 23rd of same month. Our main objectives to conduct the program in world heritage Pasupatinath, is to ensure that pilgrims visiting the site to celebrate one of the big Hindu festival, Mahasivaratri, will have no risks of Rabies during and onwards of the festival. Besides, it ensures that the severe cases of Mange, TVT, and bacterial infections will have timely cures in shelters near the temple areas. Pasupatinath is regarded as the most important heritage and especially, Hindus worship Mahashivaratri every year.
Hundreds of thousands pilgrims from India, Bangladesh, USA and EU will visit the site during the festival with different reasons and the condition of roaming dogs are major concerns from everyone visiting there. We expect to give the best services to severe cases and control the fertility on female dogs by spaying them and monitoring them ensuring that they are living healthy. Male dogs are lesser in number comparable to female population as per the records of advanced mobile app which indicate each dog counted via GPS System.
HAT UK is supporting in Dog Population Management (DPM) in Nepal with this specialized android phone application that enables the geo-locating of every dog counted in the survey. Rabies is considered as the threats in South Asia and Africa, because street roaming dog population is growing day by day. Irresponsible ownerships, unmanaged garbages, lack of pet care awareness etc are the root causes of highly dense free roaming street dog population.
We need supports and help to control the breeding population of dogs and control Rabies till it eradicate from our societies and nation.
