Summary

Each month, we receive numerous calls to rescue dogs that have been hit by cars, are suffering from mange, horrible wounds, tick fever, or have been abused. About 40 of them end up at our clinic where we hope we can save them. In order for us to do that we need to pay for fuel for our van, get x-rays and blood work, perform emergency surgeries, splint legs, administer daily treatments, provide nutrition and give lots of love to these dogs who may have never been touched by a human before.

Challenge

India has the highest numbers of stray dogs in the world at an approximated 35 million. India also has the highest amount of human deaths by rabies. 95% of the time this is the result of a dog bite. Rabies is 100% preventable.

Solution

Every year, Dharamsala Animal Rescue hosts a 2 week population survey of the stray dog population. We use It is an opportunity to mass vaccinate as many dogs as we can within the 7 defined sections we are currently working. The goal is to hit 90% sterilization and 70% vaccination (percentages needed to stop growth of the population and eradicate rabies). We bring the community together to help capture the dogs and learn more about how to safely and compassionately interact with street dogs.

Long-Term Impact

In addition to vaccinating 800+ street dogs, Dharamsala Animal Rescue will do a population count so we can get an accounting of the number of strays in our area. With this data we can focus our humane dog population management (HDPM) program so we can better monitor and evaluate our success. HDPM also includes working to sterilize 90% of the population to control the dog population. Each year we sterilize more than 1,000 dogs to ensure the long term safety of the community.
