We need your help to prevent this animal welfare catastrophe.
We saw the devastation that the last lockdown caused to the stray dog population, restaurants and markets closed, volunteer feeding groups banned from going outside and a chronic food shortage made the lives of stray dogs in Nepal even harder. Without warning Nepal has now been thrown into another strict lockdown to control the dramatic rise of Covid cases across the country as the problem spills over from India into Nepal.
Homeless dogs living on the streets of Kathmandu number in the tens of thousands. Basically all are already undernourished and in ill health, from years of neglect compounded by restrictions and lack of food from the lack of lockdown. We do not want to see dogs starving on our streets and puppies that have to go days or even weeks without food.
You can help prevent this. A bowl of rice and chicken to feed a hungry stray dog costs a little as £0.20/$0.25 and the exchange rate works in our favour, so your donation can go even further. Our team is deployed on the ground ready to go. We are hoping with enough support to buy 80kg of chicken and 25kg of rice so we can feed 1500 dogs over the next 30 days.
Please see photos and videos of our work below – they give a sense of just how many animals are in need. Puppies and mothers and the malnourished, there are thousands of street dogs in Kathmandu and we cannot ignore them during their time of need.
It only costs around £0.20/$0.25/30 rupees to feed a street dog a meal of chicken and rice. This means that:
- £5 = 25 meals
- £10 = 50 meals
- £25 = 125 meals
- £50 = 250 meals
- £100 = 500 meals
- £250 = 1250 meals
Even small amounts of money go a long way in Nepal, and your donation will have a big impact for animals in need.
