Kathmandu – Nepal
€ 270 Euros Per Week
Aid in the rescue of dogs in need as well as getting them back to a healthy state before they get adopted.
This is a chance to not only learn more about Nepal – this is a unique opportunity to learn about dogs, to understand them, and learn how to handle and care for them. The streets of Nepal are often flooded with injured and/or starving dogs. In this program, you will help in a lot of different activities including rescuing of the animals and in the process of bringing them back to health.
The condition of animals in Nepal is very impoverished. They are poorly kept and often kicked out of their homes as they grow old. On the streets, the conditions are even worse. A lot of stray dogs and cows can be seen in almost every street and square of Kathmandu. They are left to fend for themselves and roam freely on the streets.
During the program, you will aid in the rescue and rehabilitation of street dogs and those that have been abandoned by their owners. These dogs are usually mangy and starving. A lot of these animals suffer from the agony of maggots, infected wounds, skin disorders, worms and parasites, and run the risk of losing their limbs. The program has been operating in the valley to resolve these issues and to counter the growing number of street dogs. After being rescued, the dogs are kept in the animal shelter and later released or offered for adoption and into a better life.
