Feed a Street Dog - Spread Awareness

Christmas is coming up and so we volunteers thought to make a christmas gift to the street dogs in Kathmandu - we will feed them. Of course not all of them, but we will try to feed as many as we can. Also, of course, we want to show to the people that compassion with the dogs is a good thing and we will take the chance to hand out leaflets about KAT and try to spread awareness about how dogs should be treated, be it street dogs or pet dogs.

The event will take place on the 17th of December, and if you would like to take part, you are more than welcome! You can either get in contact with us (katvolunteers@gmail.com) and we will set you up with some leaflets and dog food, or you could grab some dog food from your local shop and just get some leaflets from us, and feed the dogs in your area or wherever you would like to. Also, if you don't have time to feed the dogs yourself, you are very welcome to make a donation of dog food, so we and our helpers can feed even more dogs.

Feeding the steet dogs is really just a present to the dogs, we know that it doesn't have any long-term impact (KAT is not putting in money for that, it is just us volunteers, KAT needs the money more urgently for sterilisation and treatment); that's why we are also giving out information, so the people will know about KAT's sterilisation program and hopefully support us. Also, there is some information included about adopting a dog from the KAT Centre and how to take care of your pet dog. As you know, we have a lot of puppies and are desperately looking for homes, so we hope that maybe some people will come and adopt one. The leaflets are in Nepali, but we will also have our regular English broschures.

Please support us in either way you can!
