“Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures.”

-By His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

TCV Chauntra  Animal Club
As quoted above, His Holiness always says that we need to care and have concern for others’ well being as we care for ourselves. Parallel to this here in TCV Chauntra we have a very special committee called ‘Dog Care Club’ who looks after the stray dogs in the school. It is one of the oldest clubs in our school lead by Mrs. Tenzin Dolker, our senior Science teacher. It has been more than a decade since she has been looking after the dogs in our school premises. She takes the main charge and the responsibility and she is backed by some of our students who volunteer to help her in this mission. The task they perform is extremely commendable and is not everyone’s cup of tea. They risk their own safety to create a healthy and disease free environment for others.

Here are some of the things they do beside their daily chores

to vaccinate the dogs against rabies, parvo-virus.

to treat dogs from both ecto-parasitic and endo-parasitic infection

to sterilize all dogs in and around our school campus

So on 13 July 2017 with the collaboration of our school and the Tibet Charity, Dharamsala, a veterinarian accompanied by two of his assistants vaccinated and sterilized all the stray dogs in and around our school premises so that the school remain safe and healthy from animal diseases.

We express our gratitude to the whole team for creating such a safe and sound environment for all of us residing here. We truly appreciate your selfless act and generosity towards these innocent creatures. Hats off!
