Welcome to my Katmandu Animal Treatment (KAT) Centre Just Giving page.
I have lived in Kathmandu for almost a month now. Not long. But long enough to experience its poverty, pollution and chaos. Around 20,000 street dogs live in this horn honking, lung hocking, smoke belching city. Whatever their condition - starved, diseased, injured or afraid - they are ignored by the majority, left to live or die, just another heartbeat. Until their numbers just get too great, that is; then they are poisoned.
KAT are one of the few charities working to change this. By neutering female dogs, treating the injured and diseased and educating local people they are trying to make Kathmandu a dog friendly city.
The problem is extraordinarily large. I have no real donation target, I am starting small and simply hope to make a difference. Money raised will go towards KAT's new kennel facility and the cost of giving the dogs KAT rescue what they need.
Thank you for reading.
