1,000th Dog Treated in Bylakuppe Outreach Clinic

Thu 8th Feb 2018

The team from WVS India have been running the Jamste Animal Birth Control and Anti-Rabies Programme in the Tibetan settlement of Bylakuppe since October 2017.

Our Clinical Director at ITC India, Ilona Otter, said “Outreach clinics like the Jamste project, where we work very closely with a small community, are important to educate people about rabies control and also to show them in action what animal welfare is, and how we can best promote it within our communities.”

We’re now excited to announce the project has reached an exciting milestone… The 1000th dog has recently been operated on! In just over three months, the team have now made a real difference to a huge amount of the animals living in this region.

Spay and neuter surgery is so important to promoting a healthy animal population and, in an area where veterinary care is lacking, will improve the levels of animal welfare in Bylakuppe. The programme will continue in this region, and the vets from WVS India are powering forward to provide treatment for the animals here, and educate the community about the importance of animal birth control and rabies.

Congratulations to the team working on the Jamste project!!
