How You Can Help


Sponsor a Dog

At the moment, we provide ongoing care to approximately 50 dogs, which live full-time in the centre. About half of these dogs are sponsored by kind individuals or groups, who provide $20 USD per month (payable monthly or annually) to cover the cost of one dog's food, basic care and annual vaccinations. The cost is slightly higher for sick dogs.

Sponsorship, enables a sponsor to get to know a dog and to follow its progress through receiving regular reports (with actual costs for treatment, where appropriate) and photos. There are 28 dogs who are currently in need of a sponsor, such as little semi-blind Gogi, little cute Pashu, Suman and Rikky. To view the dogs needing sponsors, please read the attached pdf ( or view the presentation at this link: .

If you see a dog that speaks to your heart, Please contact us with your choice of sponsored dog, so that we can send you more information on your dog and help you to arrange sponsorship payments.  



We welcome visitors to see what we do and to participate in caring for the dogs. Any help you can give will be appreciated.  Please contact us if you have relevant interests and skills, whether working with the dogs or fund-raising on their behalf.

Adopt a Dog

When dogs recover, some can go back to their neighbourhoods, however, others are in need of homes.  Adopting a dog requires commitment, love and care for the life of the dog.  Visit or contact us to find out about dogs for adoption.  Fostering a dog is also possible.



Community Dog Welfare Kopan is run by the voluntary efforts of Kate and Doug Clendon.  We appreciate the help of local and international donors who can provide support whether financial or food, equipment and medical supplies.  The list below gives an indication of how your financial contribution can help. 


US$ 10 covers the cost of vaccination against distemper, hepatitis, parvo-virus, leptospirosis and para-influenza 

US$ 20 feeds a dog for one month 

US$ 30 pays for neutering a dog


Donations go directly to the dogs, with no overheads or extras.  

Because of the lower cost of living in Nepal, even a small amount can go a long way to improving a dog's life.
