Summary

Any animal lover would be horrified at the harshness of the lives of street animals in Nepal. The goal of the project is to assist the Himalayan Animal Rescue Trust (HART) in continuing its animal welfare programmes. HART is based in Pokhara, Nepal and aims to end the culling of street animals and give many thousands of cats and dogs happier and healthier lives within their communities.

Challenge

Any animal lover would be horrified at the harshness of the lives of street dogs. In addition to suffering the local authority poisoning campaigns, they 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 HART's areas, so its programmes are the only opportunity for help available to the dogs and cats there.

Solution

By neutering, vaccinating and treating street animals HART produces a healthy dog population that local owners can respect and care for. HART uses Pokhara as an example of what can be achieved for animals and community by working with local authorities and repeating core programmes. Supporting HART will enable the continuation of the programmes that have already helped thousands of animals. With enough support, HART will be able to reach beyond Pokhara's immediate borders to rural villages.

Long-Term Impact

HART will benefit thousands more dogs over its next year of operation. The local communities of Pokhara will be protected from rabies and from other zoonotic diseases. Attitudes to animals will continue to evolve and their treatment will improve. Visitors to Pokhara will enjoy its beautiful location and charming facilities without being haunted by scared, diseased and unhappy animals roaming its streets.
