A thoughtful and thought-provoking book review by UK dog trainer Tanya Hawkes. Tanya examines the juxtaposition of a section on Pariah (outcast) dogs and one on dogs who are victims of dog fighters. Tanya’s writing is raw and honest and pulls you in, whether or not you’re interested in reading the book. This book review is an intriguing read for anyone interested in the lives of “disposable” dogs, outcast dogs and canine victims of cruelty, including dog fighting victims.
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
