Our premises at the DLSO in Matepani-12
In September 2014, we moved into purpose-build premises in the grounds of the DLSO in the Matepani-12 area of Pokhara. This further improved our accessibility to both community and owned animals needing emergency treatment.
HART vacated these premises at the DLSO in mid 2019. The services are being provided through a temporary rented facility in Matepani.

We have an operating theatre, a small clinic, storage room and a secure area for unloading dogs after early morning catching.
Medicines not requiring refrigeration are stored in secure cabinets
Our stock of medicine consists of necessities purchased in Kathmandu and Pokhara, and generous donations received from UK vets.

In order to transport the animals we use two Mahindra Bolero pick-ups, customised to allow safe and comfortable journeys for driver, assistants and animals.
Staff use push bikes or a second-hand motorbike for quick local journeys around town.
These custom-made tents are used as portable operating theatres and for post-op recovery during CNVR in outlying areas
