Animal Birth Control 

Animal Birth Control 

KAT Nepal was founded on the idea of helping to solve the overpopulation of street dogs in the Kathmandu Valley. Our Animal Birth Control (ABC) program started in May 2004 and operates along the World Health Organization’s guidelines for the management of stray dog populations. During the ABC program stray dogs and cats are sterilized and vaccinated to control their population and prevent the spread of rabies. 

Without spay and neuter programs, homeless animals are more likely to be involved in accidents, contract diseases, spread rabies, or die from diseases. It is a humane and effective strategy to reduce the number of animals on the streets while also improving the health of those who remain.

Spaying and neutering make a substantial difference!  Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!
