Help Vets for Compassion help the animals of Nepal
Join us on Sunday April 22, 2018 for a vegetarian High Tea, to help the Vets for Compassion team improve the lives of animals in Bharatpur and Pokhara, Nepal.
Vets for Compassion consists of a group of volunteer vets, nurses and volunteers from different professions who are dedicated to improving animal welfare both in Australia, and around the world.
One of the many ways they do this is by working in underdeveloped countries to reduce the suffering of stray animals through coordinated and sustainable Animal Birth Control and Anti-Rabies programs, as well as training local vets to deliver the best possible veterinary care to animals large and small.
During the 2015 Nepalese earthquake, many thousands of animals were killed, along with the 9000 people who lost their lives. Shortly after the disaster, the Vets for Compassion team recruited 2 Vets who worked closely with the Himalayan Animal Rescue Trust team (HART) to save many of these animals, many of which were farm animals that also represented livelihood for many of the villagers. HART is Nepal’s most accomplished animal welfare organisation. They have a team of vets, paravets, animal welfare officers, educators and dog catchers that focus on Animal Birth Control and Antirabies vaccination work. They also work to educate local communities about animal welfare.
Funds raised at this event will enable Vets for Compassion to send volunteer vets and vet nurses to undertake a follow up program in Nepal, to ensure that the HART team is provided with ongoing support, as they continue to work with animals in a community still affected by disaster. Their work will focus on Stray dog Birth Control and Anti Rabies programmes as well as follow up in the villages that were badly destroyed by the earthquake.
