BBC presenter Charlotte Uhlenbroek discusses the plight of street dogs in Kathmandu    (10 minutes)

Dr. Charlotte Uhlenbroek, BBC television presenter, animal behaviourist, and author, describes the harsh lives of stray dogs in Kathmandu, Nepal, and the work of the Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre (KAT Centre) to solve this problem. This video was made years ago when the KAT Centre was just beginning.

Charlotte Uhlenbroek grew up in Kathmandu, Nepal, and knows the plight of the street dogs intimately. There are 35,000 dogs living in the streets of the Kathmandu Valley. The Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre (KAT Centre) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the humane management of street dogs in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Centre's mission is to create within the Kathmandu Valley a dog friendly, rabies-free, non-breeding street dog population through an Animal Birth Control (ABC) programme.

The KAT Centre uses humane and effective methods to control the stray dog population of Kathmandu Valley. KAT relies on your support to treat the dogs of Kathmandu. It is a "no frills" organisation and your donation will go directly to running the Animal Birth Control (ABC) and Anti-rabies Vaccination, Rescue and Treatment, and Public Education programmes.


Watch KAT's staff catch and vaccinate street dogs in the historic village of Bungamati    (3 minutes)

The KAT Centre gave rabies vaccinations to every dog we could catch in the historic village of Bungamati, on the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley. Watch KAT's staff expertly catch street dogs in nets and sacks, as well as educating people and handing out leaflets. Now the people of Bungamati can live with their dog community without the risk of rabies.

Watch this short slideshow about the KAT Centre in Kathmandu, Nepal!

There are more than 20,000 dogs living on the streets of Kathmandu. The Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre (KAT Centre) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the humane management of street dogs in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Centres mission is to create within the Kathmandu Valley a dog friendly, rabies-free, non-breeding street dog population through an Animal Birth Control (ABC) programme.


Meet Kanchu, a cute little dog who has captured the hearts of KAT's staff    (1 1/2 minutes)

This tiny scrawny creature was found abandoned in the tourist area of Thamel. Kanchu (Nepali for 'much loved youngest sister') was covered in filth and was suffering from appalling skin disease. She was so weak that she was unable to stand without support. After giving her a good wash and scrub, KAT staff were pleasantly surprised to see that underneath all of that grime she is a cute little Japanese Spitz!

Kanchu needed a lot of treatment and care before her life was put back on track. A neurological problem, originating perhaps from her terrible past, causes her to walk in jerky and uneven steps ... our dancing Kanchu! She likes to cuddle up in the sun with the puppies and the kittens. The staff has grown very fond of little Kanchu, and she will live at KAT until the right person adopts her.

Learn more about Kanchu, and how you can help her and other street dogs in Kathmandu!
