An Auspicious New Year for RSPCA

The RSPCA took off to a wonderful start with the Royal Patron GyalyumAshiTsheringYangdönWangchuck granting an audience to the team of RSPCA, its Board Members and the staffs of National Animal Hospital (NAH) whom we work closely with.

As an appreciation for all of their services, we presented the staffs of NAH and RSPCA with rain guard suits. The rain guards were purchased in bulk from Nepal with the support of WTG.

Such a wonderful start to our project!! And with so many animal lovers, we couldn’t have picked a better group to start with.  Thank you Madam Yeatoeh Penjore for all your help.
Such a great response from the kids. 

RSPCA visited Early Learning Centre, Thimphu to set up an ‘Animal Lovers Club’ and it couldn’t have gone better for us.  
We met with the students of class 5 and 6, a group of 37 enthusiastic students who are extremely passionate about animal welfare in particular and social responsibility in general. We are very grateful to Ms. Karma Doma Tshering (Madam Kueron) for the wonderful opportunity and for introducing us to this young group that are animal advocates in making and are going to make a difference in the lives of needy animals.

Students from Thimphu Primary School visits the "House of Downtrodden" for a tour.

On Wednesday, the 9th of May 2018, 20 students and 2 teachers from Thimphu Primary Schools took time out of their schedule to tour our RSPCA shelter. During this time, the students took this opportunity to spend quality time with our animals. The students were highly inquisitive about the animals and the programs at RSPCA. We are excited to make it a weekly event and have them every Wednesday as a part of their club day!

Formation of Our Club at ELC High School

On the 15th of May 2018, RSPCA was warmly invited by ELC High School to talk about our work and passion for animals.  Welcomed by 72 students and 11 teachers, it was a joy to see the school as an entity embrace the love for animals and has also adopted a few dogs at their school. We were warmed and encouraged that Madam Deki and her students were very much interested in our work.

Some words from Madam Tashi, the ED and founder of RSPCA that capture and represent our work.

“You learn -from animals, you learn to take care for somebody else apart from yourself. You learn to be a responsible citizen. You learn the joy of giving”

We would like to thank ELC High School for giving us an opportunity to educate and hopefully inspire young, budding animal lovers who can bring change. We hope to work with ELC again and see an animal lovers club at their school in the near future!
