On the request of Nature Conservation Foundation in Mysore (NCFM), two staff of Tibet Charity Animal Care Section joined 10 days Animal Birth Control Camp (ABC) at Spiti from 20th to 30th of May.
It has been said that the alarming rise in the stray dog population in the region has posed serious threat to the livestock. Besides the domestic animals the locals rear, the stray dogs have been a cause of concern for the existence of the snow leopards as well.
This camp has been hosted by NCFM as a follow up of the ABC camp organized last year in which we quite many stray dogs were sterilized. The last year initiative, they said, was possible largely due to the participation of Tibet Charity, Dr. Nyzil Massey and Dharamshala Animal Rescue. Dr. Dakpa Tenzin, who was our veterinarian, then, participated in that camp.
This year Dr. Surender and Mr. Lobsang Thukjey (paravet) has represented Tibet Charity in this novel cause.
We thank NCFM for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful initiative and for bearing the whole costs of our staff’s stay during the camp. We thank the local villagers for playing an excellent host and for extending whole hearted support during the period of their stay there.
