KAT's Rescue

🐶🐾❤️ Please don't abandon your dog on the streets as they also have feelings and emotions like us. Their life will be more difficult than strays because they have no idea where the food comes from and also may involve in territorial fights. They will be confused and traumatized when left alone.

When you Adopt or get a dog please keep in mind that it requires long dedication and commitment for their whole life

We have been serving every street dog we can. As there are thousands of them living on the street we cannot reach everywhere so please help them when needed and together end their sufferings.

🐈🐾❤️ Overpopulation of street Cat is one of the Rising problem in Kathmandu,Nepal.There are thousands of stray cat roaming around which may carry diseases that can spread to humans such as rabies, toxoplasmosis,roundworm etc.

We "KAT centre" have been working daily to control their overpopulation by Spaying & Neutering on Time. 3 females spayed would prevent 36 kittens from being born in a year. When we Spay and Neuter, it has many benefits for them such as:
- Less risk for malignant mammary tumors
- Decreases the chance for infections of the uterus
- Improves life expectancy
- Reduction of territorial marking etc

Help us Reach our Goal and Together let's end the problem of Overpopulation of street animals by Spaying & Neutering them on Time🐾❤️🐈

🎨🔫HAPPY HOLI To Everyone🔫🎨..!!!

Holi is one of the biggest Festival of Nepal also known as the festival of colours. It is celebrated by splashing water and smearing each other with colours.

In this Festival of colours the stray dogs mostly fall victim to toxic colours as Dogs🐶 like to lick their bodies and if they're covered in colours, they'll consume the ingredients in those dyes, which could lead to stomach, gastrointestinal, skin infections etc

We KAT centre celebrate Holi each year by giving bath to our rescued dogs. We request everyone not to put any colours to the street dogs. If you see anyone putting colours then please stop them immediately and explain how it can affect their health.
Please share to be Voice for Voiceless❤️🐶🐾

Case: Mange (Before and After)
🐶🐾❤️Brownie is one of our oldest members at the KAT Center. He used to live in Swyambhu, Kathmandu with other community dogs. Unfortunately, he started to have skin infections due to low immunity and suffer from mange diseases. Day by day his situation got worst and lost all of the hair from his body. Luckily, he was spotted by one of the community people of Swaymbhu who informed us about his situation.
As soon as we got a message, our rescue and treatment team rescued him to the shelter. When we found him he was depressed, weak with no hair on his body. As soon as we get him into our clinic our team gave him a good bath with medicated shampoo. We fed him a proper diet and start the treatment in order to recover from his mange diseases and to stop the hair fall. After a long treatment, he is recovering and roaming around happily in the shelter. Now, He is living the best day of his life in the shelter.

If you see any sick and injured stray dogs /cats around your community please message us: 🐶🐾❤️

Case: Hit and Run
Meet Tripod! KAT Centre got an emergency call from the community people of Baluwakhani that the cat was hit by a vehicle and injured badly in its worst condition💔 Immediately our rescue and treatment team rushed towards the incident place. When we reached there the poor cat was badly injured and crying for help.

We rescued the cat to our shelter for treatment. Our vet team found that her leg was open fractured due to a road accident and had bone infection disease. There was no option; sadly after a long surgery, we amputated her injured leg. In our good care, she has been recovered now, and running and jumping inside the shelter with her three legs.

She is very much friendly and loves cuddling. Help us find her forever home where she can get enough love and care. 🐶❤️🐾

Mass rabies vaccination in Kapan after Rabies suspected dog bite the local people:
A community person was bitten by a rabies suspect dog at Kapan. The KAT Clinic was informed by the Srijana Tamang from the same community to identify the dog and for the rabies diagnosis process. Our vet- the team moved out soon to catch rabies suspected dog. But unfortunately, the suspected dog could not be found in the area. We are continuously following up with the community in order to catch the dog. To minimize the risk we have done blanket rabies vaccination in the community. Now, the local people are feeling safe after the mass rabies vaccination. We need more community-based rabies vaccination programs for healthy stray dogs and rabies-free communities. Good day.

Abandoned dog rescued/treated, and Adopted:

Lots of pet dogs have been abandoned on the street of Kathmandu these days after the pet owner found their dog suffering from either chronic disease or getting old. This dog was also found abandoned on the streets of Maitidevi by his owner. When we found her, she was very sad and suffering from a skin infection and aural haematoma.
We rescued her in our ambulance to our KAT Clinic. Our vet team did surgery to treat the aural haematoma and treat her bad skin condition too. She has been well looked after and given food in our best clinical environment. She has been fully recovered in a month and looks very lovely and happy.
Today, she has been adopted by lovely two souls Sh*tal Rai and Pragya Thaiba. We are very much thankful to those two beautiful souls for their adoption decision. And we are grateful that we are able to provide a forever home for this abandoned dog😀

A group of students from Kathmandu Don Bosco College has started Nyano_Suruwat (Warmth Sharing) to dogs, puppies and cats. With this, kind and generous students groups from Nyano_Suruwat came over to our KAT Clinic and hand over bunch of Mattresses for the clinic dogs and cats. Winter has not finished yet in Kathmandu, and cold is at its highest peak at the moment. Now, dogs at the KAT clinic got warm mattresses to sleep/rest on. Thank you very much for the student group for your new initiation Nyano_Suruwat and wish you a big success ahead. Thank you 😊

As well as opening a BRAND NEW animal hospital in Kathmandu, last year saw us completing three major birth control contracts on behalf of the local government of Nepal - reaching a total of 750 dogs. Each one of those simple operations gives a female dog a bright future by saving dozens of puppies being born into a life of suffering on the street. As we go forward to ambitious new projects in 2022, our core focus will stay the same as it was when we first started: creating a healthy, non-breeding street dog population for community benefit. ❤️🐶🇳🇵

Our community dogs are not safe on the streets of Kathmandu. Either they fall victim to some kind of accident or they are hurt by the public. This dog was injured in the eye - we can’t be sure how, but it is often caused by people throwing stones at them. When we found him he was in shock and really suffering. Following an intensive round of treatment, and a lot of love and care, he’s now doing much better. We will now keep him in our clinic until he makes a full recovery. We humbly request you all to please think carefully before doing something that could harm a street dog.

Thank you 😢

DO NOT CHAIN YOUR DOG. Jamie is one luck dog- watch his story in the video below.

Since he was a puppy Jamie has been chained up outside. As he grew the chain around his neck cut painfully into him, the pain became so much he broke free of the rope holding him and ran away. Jamie spent many weeks running, but unable to escape the pain, until one day someone reported him to KAT and our team went out to find him.

When we found him he was unable to eat, unable to drink and almost unable to breathe. He was rushed to KAT and into surgery to save his life. With a lot of love and care Jamie has now fully recovered and is happy and healthy.

We love Jamie, he took a long time to warm up to humans again, but is now getting all the love he missed out on when he was a puppy.

Happy Popo is back home

Only 3 legs but not slowing down ❤️❤️❤️. Popo was run over by a taxi 🚕 ⚠️ badly breaking her arm in many places. She was rescued by KAT and the only way to save her life was to amputate her arm. She healed quickly and spent time recovering at KAT playing and eating lots of food. Today she was released back to her community and it was lovely to see how excited she was to see everyone and how excited her community was to have her back.

JASPERS STORY: Jasper lived a very hard life on the street, for over 17 years he was alone, fighting to survive. When he was found by KAT, he was covered in bird poo, unable to move, shunned, ignored and even kicked by passers by for not moving even though he was unable to stand.

Jasper was brought to KAT and diagnosed with extensive kidney disease, he did not have much time left in this world. He has lived a long life of hardship, pain and struggle and we all wanted to give him some comfort at the end. To sleep in a warm bed, be pampered by our staff with cuddles and soft-boiled chicken and to feel loved for the first time in his life.

Thanks to our kind staff, we were able to provide a small happy ending to Jaspers sad tail. Despite all he went through it was a very sweet and affectionate dog and will be missed by everyone here. Goodbye Jasper

Big thank you to Project V.E.T.S for sending up a donation of veterinary supplies, this will help a lot in us treating more and more stray animals that need our help. If you want to find out more about our rescue and treatment program please visit> https://katcentre.org/en/rescue-treatment
MEET Michelle! When she was picked up she was not moving, not opening her eyes and looks so skinny it was hard to tell she was still alive at all apart from her small faint breathing. She was rushed back into the clinic to start treatment and our vets worked for a full day and night to save her. Michelle underwent daily treatment for 3 weeks to treat her infection, skin disease and help her recover some of the weight she has lost. We think that if there had been even just 1 hour delays in finding and bringing her to KAT she would not have made it. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the team, Michelle has now made a full recovery and looks unrecognizable compared to just a few short weeks ago! Her skin has improved, her fever is gone and she has put on a healthy amount of weight. She is now full of energy and running and playing with the other dogs at KAT.
Sarah came in KAT after being hit in the eye. The eye was badly damaged and had to be removed. During post-op we noticed she had a fever of 103°F, we did a blood smear examination and saw Trypanosome trypomastigotes (a serious infection). We started her on 5 day treatment for blood protozoa and she responded well, and soon she was able to eat drink and move around again. Now she has made full recovery, and is happy and healthy our vets were able to discharged her back to her community members who have been very worried about her condition. Happy news all round. We wish Sarah a long and happy life
