Dear Friends and Family of Action Change,

 

It's been a very busy few months for us and we have lots to share! We hav spent the last quarter on th road and setting up satalite camps, it's been an outstanding success but upon return our team needed a much earned break. 

September 28th is World Rabies Day and like every year we wanted to do a big outreach event so we headed to the community of Sauraha where we ran a 3 day 'free' Rabies vaccine program and we used this opportunity for street dogs neutered program too. Over the 3 days a total of 130 dogs was given a free rabies vaccine funded by our donors and 30 of them also goot their neuter operation too. After these 3 days our team moved to Kalabang, Gharedi where they setup the next camp and we had a toal of 41 vaccinations compleed that included both dogs and cats. In the Nepali community, dogs are preferred as pets so we were plesently surprised to see so many cats being part of the families and being brought along. 

After a short cultural break our team setup camp in Sindupalchowk were a total of 229 dogs were neutered, Among them, 152 were male and 77 female. We also was able to vaccinate all 229 dogs at the same time for rabies. After this 5 day event the team packed up and headed to Okhaldhunga leaving at 6.30am. It was a long day for the team as it took over 10 hours to reach the next location due to one of the outreach vehicles broke down while crossing a river. However upon arrival we setup and welcomes another 106 dogs to be neutered and vacinated. 

Our team went on to 4 other sites again meeting over 300 dogs and so it really has been a successful 3 months. Medical supplies are now running low along with our travel budget so as we head home it is time for us to work hard on our fundraising so we can continue our work. We are delighted with the support of the communties with our project and next year we hope to also start building a new animal rescue centre in Pokhara. 

For this reason we kindly request that you help us by sharing our updates and projects with friends and family and remember rather than buying someone a dog for christmas this year, you can make more puppies happy with a simple donation to our cause. 

 

Thank you again for your Support,

HART Project Team, Nepal

Introduction 

The situation for strays in Nepal is truly horrifying and would be enough to upset anyone. Not only are these animals suffering from disease and the local authority poisoning campaigns but they also have no veterinary help and have to scavenge for food and water..

Report 

By neutering, vaccinating and treating street animals we produce a healthy dog and cat population that locals can respect and care for properly. By working with local authorities repeating core programmes that tackle this issue through spading, protecting and providing emergency care for stray animals, we will enable the continuation of programmes that have helped thousands of animals. With your support, we aim to roll this project out to wider communities and villages!

Introduction 

The situation for strays in Nepal is truly horrifying and would be enough to upset anyone. Not only are these animals suffering from disease and the local authority poisoning campaigns but they also have no veterinary help and have to scavenge for food and water. Government institutions in Nepal give no assistance to animal welfare and there are no other animal welfare charities working in our partner areas, so our project is the only opportunity for help for these dogs and cats.

Dear Supporters,

 

As we all grappled with lockdown and disruptions due to the global pandemic, the team at HART in Nepal continue to think quickly and proactively to ensure they are still able to provide key support safely. 

 

Monsoon season has come and gone in Nepal, with the summer lashings of rain not stopping due to any pandemic. Throughout restrictions, lockdowns and decreased options to treat animals in person, the HART team has responded to a usual amount of calls for sick and injured animals. Monsoon season drives an increase in ‘mange’ cases in dogs, as their skin and fur sweat and swell in the heat and damp. Thinking creatively, the HART team switched to video outreach, assisting local community members to triage and provide treatment remotely. This has been a steep learning curve, but necessary as lockdown rules are fluid and change to protect and ensure the safety of all communities. Many essential services have used this method to engage with communities to ensure and maintain the interests of public safety and disease control. 

 

The local campaign started back in March to care for and leave food out for the many community animals, who rely on people to leave food scraps or plates of rice at their shop front or door step, is continuing with great success. Responsibility within those communities for the animals they share the space with has been a great achievement for the HART team.  

 

Construction  work on the new, larger, more well equipped work site for HART has started up again. A border fence and 2 story internal structure took shape, with finishing details and importantly electricity, to be added in the coming months. The new site will house more injured animals in large kennel spaces, allowing adequate rehabilitation until they are able to return home.  

 

Your donations make all of this work possible.  A small donation can purchase a vet wrap that helps a dog recover from injury more effectively, or medication that decreases pain for the animal following treatment. Staff training is so important and can lead to improved outcomes for the animals and we were pleased to be able to offer this opportunity for the staff.  All goes towards improving the lives of animals in Nepal.

 

With Gratitude,

Dears Supporters,

 

As we all grappled with lockdown and disruptions due to the global pandemic, the team at HART in Nepal were able to think quickly and proactively to ensure they were still able to provide key support safely. 

 

The impacts of Covid-19 are far reaching, with the whole country of Nepal remaining in Lockdown for over 2months. Many essential services also ceased in the interests of public safety and disease control. 

 

Despite the lockdown orders, HART staff continued to receive distress calls from the local community about injured and sick animals. After gaining approval of local authorities, the team were able to work in a very reduced capacity, often triaging over the phone and providing veterinary telehealth. 

 

A large awareness campaign was also started, encouraging the local community to care for and leave food out for the many community animals, who rely on people to leave food scraps or plates of rice at their shop front or door step. As virtually no one was moving around outside in the community the rate of injuries from cars or motorcycles requiring surgery were quite low. Scheduled neutering and vaccination camps were postponed meaning that the later half of the year will be jam packed for all the staff involved. 

 

Construction  work on a new, larger and more equipped work site for HART was also halted during this time. However in recent weeks a border fence and base internal structure has started to take shape. The new site will house more injured animals in large kennel spaces, allowing adequate rehabilitation until they are able to return home.  

 

Your donations make all of this work possible.  A small donation can purchase a vet wrap that helps a dog recover from injury more effectively, or medication that decreases pain for the animal following treatment. Staff training is so important and can lead to improved outcomes for the animals and we were pleased to be able to offer this opportunity for the staff.  All goes towards improving the lives of animals in Nepal.

 

With Gratitude,
