 Acknowledgement

The team would like to sincerely express our gratitude to Dasho Dzongda and Dzongkhag Administration for valuable advice and immense support during all time of campaign.

 

We also would like to thank Regional Livestock Development centre Tsimasham for taking as lead coordinator and providing fund support for the campaign.

 

We are very much thankful to all the hoteliers and resort owners of Paro for funding the working lunch during whole length of campaign.

 

It would not be fair if we do not offer our sincere gratitude to National coordinator of National Dog Population Management (NDPM) & Rabies Control Program (RCP) for providing us vehicle and team support, without which, this program would not have been success.

We are equally grateful to all the local leaders and community for providing us generous cooperation during catching dogs and Gewog vehicle for transportation of dogs to clinic.

Lastly, but not the least we would like acknowledge each and every person who are directly or indirectly involved for this campaign. In addition, would like to anticipate same support and cooperation in future during such programs.
