Community Dog Welfare Kopan

Welcome to Community Dog Welfare Kopan, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing community awareness and responsibility for dog welfare in the upper Kopan area on the outskirts of 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 -

Our motto is that EVERY DOG'S LIFE MATTERS. With the overall aim of giving EVERY DOG A CHANCE FOR A BETTER LIFE by caring for vulnerable dogs, and promoting dog welfare by encouraging a healthier, safer community environment.  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, especially those who sponsor the routine care of many of the dogs in our centre- for more information see - amd to those kind people who have given some of our dogs a forever home- for more information on adoptions see .
