Kathmandu, September 26

Marking the World Dog Lovers’ Day, Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre and Humane Society International today held a free health check-up camp for pet and stray dogs and also provided a Doggy Care Kit that included a feeding bowl, a leash, flea/tick powder and shampoo to pet owners visiting the camp.

The event was organized with support from Animal Welfare Network Nepal.

Rahul Sehgal, director, HSI Asia, said, “We value the support that dog lovers give to communities – they are a reminder that it is possible to have an inclusive world for both humans and animals. Treating so many dogs and speaking with so many people who love them today was motivational for our team and a memory that will take us through tough days – that there is still a lot of love for dogs.”

World Dog Lovers’ Day is intended to remind people that dogs are companions and to reflect on the cruelty that occurs against man’s best friend.

Sponsored by World Dog Alliance, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, the groups established the observance to raise awareness about the Asian dog meat trade and to recognize the important role that dogs play in improving human health.

Dr Bidur Piya, veterinarian at Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre, said, “Our team enjoyed meeting and interacting with people and dogs from the community on a one-on-one basis. It was a great way to mark this day of celebration for people and their dogs, and we hope the message of care and companionship resonates with dog lovers throughout the year.”

With the World Dog Lover’s Day celebrations ending on a high note, Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre and Humane Society International will be launching Anti-Rabies Week from 28 September.
