1. Changes at Street Dog Care and our new temporary place

As we mentioned in our last news letter we had to leave our beautiful SDC center in December because of some building project. Through the kindness and generosity of Rabin Lama and Pamela Dolma we are able to use their house now, where we keep 15 dogs. These dogs, having big handicaps, that do not allow them to roam the streets anymore (like being blind, or paralysed or just too old), will stay with SDC for the rest of their lives. Since space is limited we were able to find some adoption families for some of the other dogs, and some had to be released back on the streets. Be assured though, that those back on the streets are in perfect health.

Moving to the new house, which is actually called "Andy's home", for Andy, one of our paralysed dogs is one of the residents, went very smoothly with the help of Sanu, Niraz and Andrea.

The dogs at Andy's home are being fed and helped every day by Sanu, Lhakpa and Kamala and love their new place, which also has a nice garden. Tara, our guard dog, has definitely taken her role again as the SDC protectress.

We still keep a little space near our old center, which is open on Mon/Wed/Fri from 9:00am-12:00pm and 3:00- 6:00pm where you can stop by and say Hi or leave goodies for the dogs like blankets, shampoos, medical supplies, etc. You can also purchase our SDC bags or calendars to support us, and, very important, let us know about sick dogs that you have seen so we can send help.
This would also be the place to let us know if you are interested in adopting a dog.

Ongoing is also our project of feeding the Boudha Stupa dogs on a daily basis.

And we are still looking for a good land on which we can build a new SDC center. If you have any suggestions please do contact andrea@streetdogcare.org   -  




 

2. Saturday Camp banned from Boudha Stupa

We are extremely sad to inform you that the Boudhanath Area Development Committee has prohibited us to continue our Saturday Camp at Boudha Stupa. Our attempts to change their minds were so far unsuccessful.

Our Saturday camp exists since February 2009 and allowed us to help countless street dogs in need.

At the moment we have no choice as to accept their decision. However, you can help us by visiting the Boudhanath Area Development Committee and tell them about the importance of the Saturday Camp for the entire community. The more people stand up against this decision, the better our chances that they change their minds.

this is the address of the Committee: 
Bouddha Bazaar, Kathmandu Ward. no. 6

4. Dog Roy was adopted 
Roy grew up at Street Dog Care and was so lucky to meet Aaji, who obviously fell in love with him and adopted him. He now enjoys his new wonderful life in Canada, where he even has got a new doggie sibling!

5. Dogs that need a new home  - Khairi

Khairi had skin problems and is a very friendly dog that needs a loving home. If you are interested in adopting Khairi please do contact andrea@streetdogcare.org or call Sanu at: 9841075383.






Dog Dawa is also looking for a forever home


Please spread the word. We have more dogs that are looking for a home and it would be nice to help them find a permanent place.

Here is an album of our current dogs looking for homes:

6. Sanu and her work at SDC

Sanu is truly holding the forth at SDC these days... She helped moving the centre to the new place, looks daily after the well-being of our dogs at Andy's home, feeding and cuddling them, keeping the place clean, and brings them to the vet if necessary.
She is also a supervisor for our staff and coordinates the daily work. If visitors come she is the direct contact person on-site in Nepal.
The most important thing is that the dogs love her. Please enjoy some photos of them together...
