There is estimated to be 3,5 million stray dogs in Myanmar/Burma.
We are a small NGO working to improve living conditions for stray and companion animals in Myanmar. We always strive to give direct aid to the animals that needs help the most. We work on site where the animals live, often on monasteries, running neuture/spay (ABC) programs and vaccinating against rabies. We also focus on improving general health issues animals suffers from like the skin disease Mange and cat-flu.
There are few shelters in Myanmar, and they can only take care of a limited number of animals, this is why our aim is the not so lucky ones on the street where 99% of the population lives. Our main goal & long-term program is to give a better future to animals in one of the worlds poorest countries where no official care take system exist for these millions of strays. We want to help those who have a chance, but also give a chance to future generations through population control, as well as preventing the spread of rabies. Vaccination programs for the animals as well as locally spreading information can make a big difference for both people and strays living side by side.
GAFs administrative work is run 100% on a voluntery basis. We emphazise the importanze of making sure the donations we recieve goes directly to helping animals in need. We also engage local workforces, and all our veterinarians are local specialists paid by our organization.
