We are pleased to let you know that we have purchased the land, without using the money we have all raised using this platform, net $ 17,784. This was a result of various hasty decisions and meetings as you are all aware as our target was too high, and even though you all supported us with your love and devotion towards animal-lives, and seen or heard about the little things KAT Centre has been able to do for the poor animals - we were not able to succeed. But we are not the ones who give up. Even though we were in crisis, dear friends, we have not stopped sterilizing street-dogs, as we have realised stopping sterilization means a massive outbreak of street-dogs and Rabies. (Read a report by Huffington Post today on Rabies-Impact Globally). We have been vaccinating over 27,000+ stray dogs, keeping in check the dangerous risks of Rabies. This number, given with above report's prediction that around 70 % of rabies vaccinations helps reduce the rabies-risk to humans dramatically.
Please read our detailed newsletter (here). As we have personally addressed you all in the newsletter outbox, please make sure you look in the "promotion" sections (gmail) and junk (hotmail), especially if you haven't added kat centre to your contact list. You can add us as [email protected] as your contact list. We are sending some interesting animal stories as we are also treating them off their sickness and sadness.
With the recent Government's plan to widen roads and build bigger water-supply system the road has become even dangerous for the street dogs. Watch a dog recovering from Road Traffic Accident, learning to walk again at KATCentre.
In another video Sarna receives coconut oil massagein relax mood. However, you should know she traveled 50 kms to Kathmandu for treatment, for fighting skin parasites, and growing her hair back (treatment unavailable over there). She was rescued by two brave construction-volunteers re-constructing earthquake-damaged Rasuwa Region of Nepal. We will post the full story soon.
As we start construction with the amount we raised, we ask you to be content that we will build KAT Centre together. We ask for your help to plea for us, by sharing our newsletter along with your personal experience of KAT Centre. We can't shut down, but we need your support as long as we run this centre, as we need to constantly bug you for some medicines and dollars, but also bug you to ask your friends and colleagues for some more medicines and dollars.
The animals really have NOWHERE ELSE TO GO. We are even distributing medicines (Ivermectin, de-worming tablets, spot-ons/frontlines for ticks & fleas, antibiotics, and leashes) to people who are willing to help the dog, as bringing all the unhealthy animals to the centre is beyond possible. Most Common cases of Mange are treated outside by providing medications, whereas Road Accidents are given high priority for emergency.
We will soon update you with our more solid plans as we start the foundation work of the new centre. We are planning building locally, using local resource and volunteer manpower. In fact, Douglas and his friend (Sarna's Rescuers) have even promised coming to Kathmandu once our construction starts, to help with iron and building works.
