Vaccination: We have been working with the local government and international organizations to provide vaccines in community dogs. The process is still going on with larger human resources and organization involvement the global plan of eliminating rabies from the world shall only be possible if all of us work together.
Animal Birth Control: KAT has spayed or neutered 31,050 dogs. Nearly 200-250 dogs are spayed each month with the ongoing. All Street dogs are sterilized, vaccinated against rabies, treated for any skin disease, worms, fleas and ticks, illness, wounds, or injuries.
Emergency Rescue: The rescue and Treatment Program of KAT treats those dogs injured or sick.
Awareness and Education: KAT's awareness and education program is an awareness generation Program. KAT wants to create Kathmandu a city where cruelty towards animals is eliminated. For this, public awareness is vital. KAT periodically distributes people the pamphlets like awareness about rabies, other zoonotic diseases, avoiding dog bites, how to take care of dogs, and others.

We work in many areas for animal service
Among them Our five major work for animal welfare are
Rescue any injured or helpless animals in need of help and treatment.
In the context of Nepal animal cruelty still exists and because of such unware people, many animals get injured.In such cases, KAT Nepal rescues them and brings them to KAT with the help of their ambulance as soon as we get any such information.Along with that if any animals are seen injured or in need of treatment they are brought to KAT Center with the help of an ambulance and an experienced team of dog or cat catchers.
Feeding street animals that are hungry and haven't gotten enough to eat cause of covid
Since Covid started the street animals haven't gotten their regular food as people can't go outside which makes it hard to feed animals.Kat has been distributing food in many areas of Kathmandu regularly so that these animals don't go hungry and can get their regular diet.
Controlling the huge population of street dogs of Kathmandu in a humane way.
Kathmandu always had a huge population of street dogs and this hasn't changed.The Kathmandu Metropolitan City used to use inhumane methods to control this population of street dogs like poisoning them
with strychnine. This takes around nine hours to kill a dog after it experiences violent seizures. This cost RS. 400,000 per year and studies have shown was a complete failure, leaving piles of rotting carcasses in the street which are then thrown into the river, creating a human health hazard, a risk to pets and animal suffering. The urban environment, with so much street garbage, encourages street dogs to breed and no matter how many dogs were killed they were replaced by more.
KAT uses the animal birth control program to control the population of dogs, using this method KAT sterilizes the female dogs and this helps in controlling the population.
Constantly fighting a war against rabies
Rabies is a deadly virus spread to people from the saliva of infected animals. The rabies virus is usually transmitted through a bite. Rabies is caused by the Lyssa virus that is responsible for the deaths of 55,000 people annually across the world.
KAT vaccinates street dogs which makes the danger of rabies decrease by a lot.
In the context of Nepal, people are still unaware and are still learning about animal abuse.
KAT is spreading awareness in many ways so that animal abuse and animal cruelty perish from this world.KAT invites students over to the KAT center where they can see how animals are treated and are taught about the importance of animals.KAT also conducts awareness programs where KAT goes to schools and teaches them about animal rights and animal welfare.
