The Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre (KAT)
5% of the sales of our dog bones are allocated to KAT
It is estimated that there are over 20 000 street dogs in Kathmandu, and while there are people in the community who do try to support their neighbourhood dogs, there are many illnesses, injuries and weakened dogs. It can be tough to see, especially as a dog lover, so our dog bones were created as a fund generation product to help KAT. Why not connect our dog loving customers here with dogs needing support elsewhere. KAT is run by a volunteer board and operates a blissfully peaceful treatment centre on the outskirts of Kathmandu, as well as South Asia’s first animal ambulance to treat dogs in their communities, or to transport for treatment. In addition to helping dogs that are not well, KAT runs a reproduction prevention program to reduce stray dogs, and also an education program to prevent abuse of the dogs on the streets.
