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.
A jacket with both RSPCA and WTG logo was also presented to Gyalyum and the Board Members. Gyalyum shared tea and snacks with the team and expressed her appreciation for everyone’s commitments towards Animal Welfare.
With the start of the year, RSPCA’s activities were covered in the media, one in the national newspaper;

Formation of Animal Lovers Club
At Thimphu Primary School
We are so excited to have finally made the first step towards forming an ‘Animal Lovers Club’ and would like to thank Thimphu Primary School for the wonderful opportunity. The RSPCA team met with 33 energetic students between the ages of 9 to 11, who all registered for different programs and activities of RSPCA (Membership, Adoption, Foster and Sponsorship among other activities).
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.
The response from the children were amazing, they had great ideas and suggestions which are definitely going down in our activities list.
