Sneha's Care Animal Shelter Nepal

There are more than 30,000 stray dogs in Kathmandu. They roam neighborhoods seeking food, water and shelter. They fight over the limited amounts of food available and suffer from painful diseases. Some are hit by cars, acid attacekd by people, hit by sharp weapons and others are poisoned, the life of a street dog is often one of pain and suffering. Thousands of dogs are suffering each year and not many people help the dogs in the street.

With no homes, these dogs don’t have the luxury of vaccinations to prevent serious diseases such as rabies and distemper and many are infected with skin parasites (mange) causing discomfort, itchy burning skin, infection, and hair loss. These dogs are not only suffering from malnourishment, dehydration, and infection they also pose a health concern to adults and children because of the risk of passing on their infections, including rabies.


Spay/Neuter is an alternative to euthanasia for managing and over animal populations. Working together with local communities is the only long term solution, most humane and comprehensive approach that includes education and the promotion responsible pet ownership. These sterilizations will save thousands of helpless puppies being born into a life of suffering, disease and painful deaths.

Long-Term Impact

Street dogs are increasing in number because things aren’t being taken care of. One litter of dogs may consist of 5-6 pups. With little control over the breeding amongst street dogs, the number of street dogs will keep escalating. This is why sterilization of dogs is very important.

About Sneha’s Care

Sneha’s Care is a locally registered charity in Nepal (Reg number 142068/072/073). The charity was founded in 2015 by Sneha Shrestha to assist as many street dogs in Kathmandu as possible.

At the initial stages, the dogs needing emergency assistance are rescued and then kept at the kennels, until the recovered or found a family to adopt them. In 2015 we managed to open our own shelter where at the moment we house around 50 dogs. From the start of the organisation, we managed to find good adoptive families for more than 100 dogs. We are also running outreach campaigns where we vaccinate and treat street dogs. So far we have vaccinated more than 2500 street dogs, rescued more than 1000 dogs, Spayed/Neutered 700 Dogs. Most of the costs of the shelter and other programmes are funded directly by Sneha. Only 10% of the costs are at the moment covered by individual donations.

We are one of very few organisations in Nepal that follow no kill policy.
