DOG EAT DOG

Dogs injure wildlife, livestock, and other dogs too. HMP treated several dogs for wounds from fights during our 2014 neutering and vaccination camp. It is not easy to be a dog in the Himalaya. Even if you have an owner to look after you, it doesn’t take much for your life to hit a downward spiral. Simple wounds that could easily be treated in the city, become life threatening afflictions that mean certain death or permanent disability. The brown dog above was likely the aggressor in its last fight that left its right eyelid torn open. If our medical team had not showed up in Ngawal, its eye would have simply rotted away. This dog was given a second chance. It would have been abandoned becaus

Making "scary" surgery safe

Many of the communities we work with do not have a culture of medicine. For you and I, when we seek medical advice or intervention, we trust the methods because it is something we are accustomed to since young. Many locals we work with are still skeptical about the safety of the neutering procedure. Tackling this challenge is a long term and ongoing effort. (Above: The head monk of Manang, Lama Guru Rinpochi Seruf Gyalzen, has praised and pledged his support for our project! He shared that he is excited to have a project that gives an alternative to the dog culling that has been taking place in the district) When our team arrived at in the village of Pisang, residents were keen to learn of a

CROWDFUNDING FOR MUTTS

Our first Pozible fundraiser ran for three months from January 2014, and gave us the crucial support we needed to make this unprecedented journey into the Himalayas possible. We didn’t know if we’d make it, but you showed us that you wanted us to succeed. We’re deeply encouraged and honoured by the outpouring of love and support . Thank you to our supporters, volunteers and partners for the hard work and effort you put in to bringing this to life! We raised a total of SGD 4,605.02 from the Pozible campaign, after discounting handling fees and pledged payments that could not be captured. An additional SGD 5,180 was raised from private sources. Our Pozible campaign not only helped us to reach

WE DO WHAT WORKS

Our challenges though big are not insurmountable. We want to keep things simple and effective by using methods and strategies that already work. Sterilisation Long-term sterilisation efforts in Nepal’s hill and low-lying districts have proven that sustained sterilisation efforts in a focussed area is effective in reducing community dog populations. One procedure takes just 30 minutes but remains effective for a dog’s lifetime, as long as 7-10 years in the Himalaya. We want to mobilise a veterinary team into the Himalaya each year, for a period of three years for each district. It is essential that we return to sterilise and vaccinate the animals consistently, as dogs left un-neutered repopul
