Organization Description
Sneha’s Care is a locally registered charity in Nepal (Reg number 142068/072/073). The charity was founded in 2015 by Sneha Shrestha to assist as many street dogs in Kathmandu as possible.

According to the current government assessment, there are around 30,000 dogs living on the streets of Kathmandu alone. The figure for the whole of Nepal is unknown. Many of those dogs are mistreated, thrown away on the streets by their owners, victims of a variety of diseases. In general, the Nepalese public are scared of street dogs even though there have been hardly any cases of the dogs attacking people. Lack of education is a major problem and we have witnessed many children and adults torturing puppies for no reason at all. Throughout our work we have noticed a massive need for outreach campaigns where we can help the dogs and at the same time educate the community.

The objective of Sneha's Care is to find adoptive families, rescue injured dogs, spay/neuter, outreach campaigns where we can vaccinate and treat street dogs & shelter care handicapped dogs.

Our mission is to rescue and provide immediate care to those dogs that have been mistreated and have no other place to turn to, and to link them with responsible adoptive families.


As we are running on limited employees and the number of rescued dogs has been increasing everyday, we cannot afford many employees at our shelter currently. We need volunteers to help us with our daily work so that more injured dogs get new life.


We have a big space and a walking area where the dog can be taken for walk. All the dogs in the shelter must go on the walk as they might be bored in the shelter and they need exercise as well. Volunteers will be taking the dog for a walk for an hour or so.

Volunteers will be washing & grooming the dog so that he/she looks tidy and might get adopt quickly, so that we can give the shelter to other dogs. As we have large number of shelter dogs at the moment,we must look for the adoptive families and we need volunteers to help with this.

As we have limited employees at the shelter, volunteers will be helping the employees in the shelter to clean the Shelter every 3 hours and make sure that the shelter is neat & clean & disease free.

We have 70 numbers of dogs at the moment and feeding them at once is a difficult job. Each volunteers are responsible to feed 10 dogs, so that the feeding will be easier.

Volunteers who has skill in rescuing dog will be sent with the Ambulance everyday with a team to rescue dogs from the street.

Volunteers who has skill in gardening will help with the new ideas and help with gardening as we have a big area of 3000msq.

Vet student can assist the doctor with surgery, spaying/neuter, dressing and every treatment in the clinic in shelter.

Volunteers who are good in teaching will be sent to the schools and community for humane education.

Sneha's Care Dog Shelter Average Ratings
I have volunteered at many other animal centres around the world, and always enjoyed the experience, but my time at Sneha's was the most satisfying. I was more involved with the work, and learned many new things as well, helping with vaccinations, neutering, and tending of wounds. Sneha's Care Project helps so many dogs (and other animals as well) that others choose to ignore. Everyone that I met had the same caring attitude, and also made me feel part of a large family, as well as a part of the community.
