Chapagaun, Lalitpur, February 23, 2016- Longer lives, improved health, better behavior and controlled population. These are some of those countless benefits of spaying and neutering dogs. It has also been proven that spaying and neutering is the only solution to everyday abuse and suffering of dogs who struggles to live on street.
Animal Nepal in coordination with Vajra Varahi, local clinic of Chapagaun conducted a spay/Neuter camp this World Spay Day with the aim of sterilizing 30 dogs from the area. The two days camp conducted on February 22 and 23 sterilized 16 dogs on first day and remaining dogs on second day.
In the second half of 2015, Animal Nepal treated 24 cancer dogs which is lot lesser than it used to be few years back. Spaying also eliminates the risk of uterine cancer and the stress and discomfort that females endure during their heat periods. They also less likely end up in a dog fight and get injured. It has also been proven that sterilized dogs are less likely to contact deadly and contagious disease.
Animal Nepal has been campaigning against the dog poisoning/ relocating and has encouraged locals and authorities towards Animal Birth Control which is the only scientific solution to dog population control. AN since it’s establishment has sterilized more than 4000 street dogs inside Lalitpur sub municipality and aims to sterilize remaining 2500 dogs (approx.) in coming days with coordination with the municipality. LSMC has officially decided to support Animal Nepal by signing 8 points MOU for humane dog population in Lalitpur. With that we can definitely hope for a better tomorrow for our stray friends of Lalitpur.
