After years of funding NGOs in India for animal welfare projects, Dharamsala Animal Rescue will be building our own clinic!! After pulling funding from the Himalayan Nature Society last year due to poor management, there has been a gap in the care for the street animals of lower Dharamsala. DAR has just purchased land for the site of the new project!!! It is a nice peaceful area and we are looking forward to getting started.
Now we need to raise funds to build the new clinic!
This new clinic will focus on getting the hundreds of street dogs in lower Dharamsala spay/neutered and vaccinated for rabies. It will also provide rescue for injured and sick animal on the street. We also will be providing education programs for the community on adoption, training, rabies awareness and compassion.
We can't help the animals if we do not have a hospital! We intend to start with a small structure consisting of a prep room and sterile operation theatre. We are working with existing NGOs and our Board of Directors veterinarian advisors to put proper protocol and process in place to ensure the best care possible for our patients.
By opening a clinic in lower Dharamsala, we will directly impact the health of the animals and communities. The statistics show that 1 person dies every half hour of rabies. 95% of the time it is from a dog bite. By implementing our spay/neuter vaccination program we can humanely lower the population of the street dogs and lower the rate of rabies. By showing compassion to the sick and injured animals we serve as a model for the community as a place for help.
