Three American women adopted street dogs from Sneha’s Care rescue in Nepal. Two of the adopters are veterinarians who took part in a 3-day spay/neuter clinic at Sneha’s Care in November, 2017. These are their stories. Momo – the caravan-traveling little rascal, Sherpa – whose adopter/rescuer saved his leg(!) and Maddie – the first doggone fantastic Nepali street dog who has paved the way for other dogs to be adopted internationally from Sneha’s Care. Who’s next? You can learn more about international adoptions from the author, who runs Nepal Street Animal Rescue.
There are an estimated 30,000 street dogs in the Kathmandu valley of Nepal. These dogs suffer all manner of diseases as well cruel treatment from humans. Sneha’s Care street dog rescue works daily to protect and help these dogs, and they sterilize as many as they can in order to stop the ongoing suffering that often comes from a life on the streets. In this post Hillary Kloetzli documents a 3-day street dog sterilization campaign by World Vets and Sneha’s Care.
Two professional photographers—Thomas L. Kelly and Thomas-Xavier Christiane—contributed dozens of photos to this post. The photography is outstanding, although some of the images are difficult to take in. Due to the short duration of the sterilization campaign, you will see several dogs packed into crates for transport, as well as dogs being sterilized and having tumors removed.Dogs of Nepal, Sneha's Care, Street dog rescue, street dogs, World Vets
