Life as a street dog is tough, particularly so in Kathmandu where road accidents are common and disease an ever present threat. The Kathmandu Animal Treatment (KAT) Centre do fabulous work to humanely manage the street dog population by running sterilisation and vaccination programmes, as well as emergency rescue, rehabilitation and adoption. https://katcentre.org.np/en/
Jennifer's Little Dog was adopted from KAT after losing his family and home in the 2015 earthquakes.
