Rescue &Recovery: Taking sick and injured dogs into the shelter for medical treatment and care, volunteers can work with Doctors of Veterinary Clinic (they visit only when needed), who provide professional service with compassion and sensitivity. Nutrition is a key factor in recovery and restoration of low immune systems – the dogs receive a balanced diet of freshly prepared food. You can make dogs walk outside morning and evening, are free in the compound during the day, and secured in the kennels at night. They are vaccinated and spayed/neutered when they regain health. Community Work: In the Kopan area many dogs are free-roaming, whether individually owned, or community dogs. A holistic approach, based on the participation of the local people, aims to change attitudes and improve the welfare of all dogs in the community. Raising awareness among community people is one possible work for volunteers. Hospice Care: Many dogs come into the shelter in a critical condition. The centre try to improve their quality of life by providing ongoing care for the chronically ill, injured, disabled, abandoned, neglected and aged to save them from suffering and dying on the street. They can live comfortably in a safe place receiving medical treatment and care. Every dog is given a chance for an improved life and a peaceful place to die.
The volunteers will stay with the host family/hostel identified by VIN. The living facilities are simple and basic. Male and female Volunteers will share the same living area with separate rooms.

2005 by a diverse group drawn from development workers, educationalists, social activists and other
VINâ€™s mission is to empower marginalised communities, with a focus on women and children,
through enhanced educational programs and community training to promote equality, economic
well-being and basic human rights.
Community Focused Programmes
VIN has a main community based pilot project in Jitpur, a rural community 11km from Kathmandu city.
The area was chosen because of its geographical location, lack of development agencies, people
interest, and its development needs. VIN has established 4 key programmes in Jitpur:
ï‚· Womenâ€™s Empowerment
ï‚· Childrenâ€™s Development
ï‚· Youth Development
ï‚· Community Health
The organizationâ€™s objective is for these programmes to be run by the Jitpur community (independently of
VIN) by 2012. Our community volunteering projects are based on around above 4 major programmes.
Out of Community Support Programmes
VIN runs a number of other volunteer placement programmes not directly related to the Jitpur community
but indirectly these programmes still contribute to our main programs. The programmes include:
ï‚· Teaching English at Buddhist monasteries / nunneries
ï‚· International journalism
ï‚· Environment, conservation and agro forestry
ï‚· Orphanage support
ï‚· Working with disable people (e.g., deaf, elderly)
