About Sneha

Sneha’s Care seeks to make long-term gains for animals by advocating for humane laws, policies and regulations. Sneha’s Care engages dedicated staffs, volunteers and legal advisor to advocate for animal friendly legislation and policy with local, state and federal government. Through this program, we develop and draft animal welfare related guidelines, standards and policies in collaboration with different government agencies and initiate for its implementation. As there is no animal welfare act in Nepal, this program has been creating a roadmap for welfare act. We also create informational materials and campaigns to raise public awareness on topics such as: reporting animal abuse and neglect, the benefits of spay and neutering, adopting from responsible shelters and the importance of preventive veterinary care.

Sneha’s Care is one of the largest animal welfare charities of Nepal. Established in 2014 by animal advocate Ms. Sneha Shrestha to protect the street and community dogs from torture, cruelty or ill usage of any kind, it has long campaigned to develop the welfare of man’s best friend. We at Sneha’s Care provide professional medical and humane care to injured, sick and abandoned dogs and other street animals in its animal shelter and also in the field. We believe that in the actions of individuals, businesses, and governments, all forms of animal exploitation including factory farming should not be acted. Sneha’s Care is continuously campaigning and attempting to introduce animal welfare law in Nepal for improved safeguards for animals and penalties for animal abuse and cruelty. We are also actively spreading animal welfare awareness on a national scale and educating the public to be compassionate to all nonhumans.

The Dogs of Kathmandu are often subjected to the most horrific cruelty. They are beaten, kicked and hit-and-run by vehicle most of the time making them injured, in pain or starving. Sneha’s Care receives almost 80 to 100 animal cruelty and abuse cases mostly related to street dogs by hotline, email and social media and we handle almost all of the cases depending on the resource availability. We have a well-equipped team consisting of veterinary doctors, assistants, and helpers who handle the cases by visiting the spot where the incident takes place. Our team is always-on-the-move in our animal ambulance where the full-fledged medical facility has been installed to transfer the animals to our clinic during serious cases. We try to handle almost all the received cases by our means and sometimes locals, and other volunteers also support in rescue and medication. After analyzing the spot animal situation, our team decides what should be done and where? In most cases where the injuries are minor, we medicate the animals in the spot and release in the same spot, but in serious cases, we transfer it to our clinic.
