Much of Nepalese culture including many other Asian cultures unfortunately do not hold dogs with the same esteem as western cultures.  It is very heartbreaking to see stray dogs everywhere in Nepal.  These dogs are often starving and suffer from various skin disorders, diseases, infected wounds, parasites and related conditions.  

Many pet owners do not accept responsibility for their pets which are often very poorly looked after and often kicked out of their homes once they’ve grown older.  These animals are then left to fend for themselves on the streets in horrific conditions and with very little love and attention.

This program aims to rescue injured and mistreated stray dogs for rehabilitation and safe housing in pet shelters so they can be put up for adoption of released.  

The project also operates the Animal Birth Control Program to educate pet owners of the importance of having dogs spayed and neutered.   Animals lovers of all kinds are encouraged to apply.  This may be a confronting placement but also very rewarding.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Tribhuvan International Airport

Programs begin every Monday, and volunteers are required to arrive the day prior, for orientation before the project. Your accommodation on the Sunday is included in the program fees.

A free airport pickup is included when arriving to Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM). You must arrive between the hours 06:00 to 24:00 on Sunday.

If arriving outside the pickup times on Sunday, you can book a private transfer for US$50.

If arriving during the week, or on Saturday, we charge US$50 for any extra night’s accommodation before your program, and another US$50 fee for a private transfer.

Alternatively, if arriving early you could wait at the arrival’s terminal for the pickup time, book accommodation at the airport and meet us during the pickup times or make your own way to the project (we will advise on how to do this).

From the airport to Kathmandu accommodation, it takes 45 minutes by taxi.

For Pokhara placements you will be picked up at KTM airport and spend the first night (Sunday) at the accommodation in Kathmandu. On Monday you will have an orientation day in Kathmandu (no orientation is offered in Pokhara). On Tuesday, you will be transferred to Pokhara, before starting your project on the Wednesday. If your first project is in Pokhara then the transfer is included. If first volunteering in Kathmandu, and then changing to a project in Pokhara, you will need to pay extra for the transfer. 

For Buddhist monastery placements please note that transfers between Kathmandu and monasteries are not included in the program fee. You will be picked up at KTM airport and spend the first night (Sunday) at the accommodation in Kathmandu. On Monday you will have an orientation day in Kathmandu. On Tuesday, you will transfer to the monastery. We highly recommend doing the cultural orientation week add-on project for monastery projects, so you have a full understanding of the local culture.

Kathmandu accommodation includes;

  • 3 Meals p/day weekdays,  2 Meals p/day weekends (mostly vegetarian cuisine)
  • 4-6 persons p/room

Eten & Drank
You will be provided with three meals a day on weekdays and two meals per day on weekends.

Internet toegang
Makkelijke toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) in Kathmandu. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Nepal.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Nepal biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Nepal dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Nepal.
