Kumaon region of Uttarakhand state of IndiaSince 2008 we have been organising neutering and anti rabies vaccination camps towards humane control of street dogs in the remote towns and villages of Kumaon, Uttarakhand. Routine sterilisation drives have not only helped reduce stray animal population, but has helped improve overall health of the animals in the region. This has also helped in significantly reducing rabies incidence thus making it safer for humans and animals all. These camps are organised in collaboration with Friendicoes SECA, Bhomik Pashu Seva Samiti and Janm Foundation. A camp was organised in Jan 2016 in Almora town of Uttarakhand and around 183 street dogs were sterilised and vaccinated and several other street dogs were treated for tumours, skin problems, etc. We need funds to be able to organise similar camps in other towns and cities of Uttarakhand. We hope to be able to one day reach out to many other street dogs across the country and help reduce the population in a humane way.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
It costs us about Rs. 1000 to conduct a surgery and another Rs. 500 towards post op care and transport of dog.We are hoping to raise Rs. 150,000 to be able to sterilise and vaccinate 100 female dogs in Uttarakhand this year. This will save 150 x 6 pups annually from being tortured on streets. Sterilisation also improves quality of life of the animals.
