Our Neutering Program
We provide our essential neutering program free to poor locals. Without our work, many more dogs and cats would be abandoned in horrific conditions and the fate of their offspring even worse.
Based upcountry locals often live far off the beaten track in basic houses with few facilities. These are the places stray dogs and cats migrate to. Some are taken in and fed and some are pushed away to continue their search for food. Many of these animals either find their way to Temples or are thrown into them.
None of these dogs and cats are neutered and often are in horrific states with skin diseases, covered in ticks and fleas and vulnerable to viruses like distemper, parvo and cat flu.
Our work during Covid-19
Brilliant work by our Outreach Manager and the local Livestock Department vet she works with who carried on with our neutering program despite the Covid-19 pandemic. We instructed them to wear masks and gloves at all times and keep 2 meters away from pet owners if possible.
They concentrated on poor local's pets that desperately needed neutering reaching their monthly target of 65 animals. Cats seem to be more prolific breeders than dogs and some households were getting overrun with kittens and cats. The need for neutering young dogs was also high. Mostly these cats and dogs were not adopted by their owners they simply arrived at their houses looking for food.
We are so fortunate to have these incredible selfless people working for the animals and our community first before they think of themselves.
