Once again the tourist season is in full swing marking a welcome return to the normal rhythm of the year. Crops have been good and, even in remote areas, reconstruction of earthquake damage has begun - though there remains a great deal of building to do.

However an aftershock of 5.6 magnitude recorded in the Solukhumbu area on 28th November reminded all in Nepal that the country is vulnerable.

Programmes continue in Pokhara and Bharatpur but were interrupted by the necessity to carry out a series of camps in the provinces of Dang and Salayan.

Lekhnath vaccination camp World Rabies Day and World Animal Day

These two special days (28th Sept and 4th Oct) were celebrated with a unique collaboration.

HART, with officials from the DLSO and with assistance from the Municipality, carried out their first joint project by offering a free health check, vaccination and neutering opportunity for any interested animal owners.


Out of the 18 wards around half have now been vaccinated and a third offered neutering.

There are fewer animals than originally estimated and they are widely dispersed in these rural areas.

Neutering camp in Dang Response to Call

Over the past months Dr Shrestha of the DLSO in Salyan province requested neuter and vaccination camps for this region.

He advised that mass poisoning of dogs had occurred in nearby municipalities in Dang and would continue unless interventions were offered.

Both Bharatpur and Pokhara staff travelled to Salyan and then on to Dang for a series of camps.

In total, 212 dogs and two cats were neutered and 277 animals were vaccinated.
