Community Dog Welfare Kopan

Welcome to Community Dog Welfare Kopan, a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing community awareness and responsibility for dog welfare in Kopan VDC (Village Development Committee area), Kathmandu, Nepal.  Community Dog Welfare evolved from caring for dogs picked up on the street and brought home for veterinary treatment and recovery.  The 'About Us' tab provides a more detailed insight into the rationale, aims, facilities and support of CDW.

With local and international support we have created an expanding network for dog welfare through practical assistance, low cost treatment, dog health programmes and creating awareness, all of which have received a positive response in the local community.  Care is provided for sick, injured and abandoned dogs in our rescue centre.  Click Our Work tab to see pictures and details of our activities.

With the overall aim of promoting dog welfare, a healthier, safer community environment is also encouraged. Community Dog Welfare is systematically extending its coverage through annual programmes for dog health, neutering and rabies control. 

We are affiliated with a developing volunteer programme based in Australia that gives international people the opportunity to make a difference in the community for the welfare of both people and dogs.  And we are affiliated with Himalayan Animal Treatment Centre (HAT-UK) and Himalayan Animal Rescue Trust (HART).  We are grateful to the many individuals who have contributed to the setting up and running of Community Dog Welfare Kopan and sponsorship of dogs.  Check our "How You Can Help" page to see how you can volunteer or donate.

We invite you to learn more about our activities here on our website. Please contact us with any queries or to request more information.
