Animal Rescue and Care
KARMA ANIMAL TRUST PROJECT
Karma Animal Trust (KAT) originally started in 2014 as a collaboration with Rishikesh Animal Rescue Project to perform an annual spay/neuter program in Rishikesh, India.
KAT started to maintain medical care throughout the year after realizing there was much work to be done. Over the years KAT has helped countless dogs, cats, mules, and cows overcome medical issues by acting as the liaison between the local population and local veterinarians. KAT provides medical care, vaccinations, de-worming, parasite, feeding and other care to ensure the longevity of the dogs they aid. Their investment into their wellness is an investment into the communities of Rural India.
In 2016 KAT registered in India as an official NGO and to date is the only legal entity working to better the lives of street animals in Rishikesh, India.
Beginning in 2014 KAT has actively participated in an Animal Birth Control Project organized by Siberia and India. During the Project more than 300 dogs in Rishikesh were sterilized. KAT is now partner with other Indian NGO’s to keep the project going year-round.
Give The Dream Foundation has been raising funds to support the work of KAT since 2016. We hope to continue to raise more funds to bring much needed veterinary care to to support the project and help it to grow outside of the Indian sub-continent in 2018. In December of 2017 and January 2018, Give the Dream Foundation volunteers traveled with a veterinarian from California to Rishikesh, India where we continued the KAT project funding and expansion. The KAT staff will train with the Veterinarian and learn new skills to continue the mission.
