During Lockdown a number of unsterilised/unvaccinated dogs have been thrown out in the tourist areas of Kovalam. While we continue to feed them it is vital that we also sterilise/vaccinate them.
We estimate at least 50 new dogs to the areas of Kovalam Junction, Samudra, Kovalam beaches and as dogs can have on average 12 pups a year this means the potential for approx. 600 more offspring within the next 12 months.
To prevent this from happening we are planning to re-start our ABC/ARV (Animal Birth Control/Anti Rabies Vaccination) program in these areas starting in August: Samudra-Kovalam beach-Kovalam Junction. We realise that this is a difficult time for everyone and we are in consultation with the major Hotels and Tourism departments to try to raise sponsorship but we would appreciate your support in whatever way you can. Our aim is to raise Rs100,000 so that we can sterilise/vaccinate 50 dogs during August-October 2021.
