Who we are
Manali Strays is a non-profit animal welfare charity, founded to tackle the issues associated with stray animals in Manali, Himachal Pradesh, India.
We aim to achieve this using a combination of humane population control, medical treatment via our mobile clinic, vaccinations, and education.
We believe that the local community is vital for this work, and it must be a joint effort between Manali Strays and the people who live and work in the area.
How we are funded
As we don’t receive any government funding, we currently rely 100% on the generosity of the public to run.
To a run a small organisation like Manali Strays each month costs approximately:
200,000 INR / £2,000 / $2,700
This covers rent, medicines, fuel, food for the rescued animals, staff costs, etc.

Animal birth control
Sterilisation is the only humane method of population control.
We carry out sterilisation camps in local villages and aim to sterilise as many dogs as possible per location,
Sterilisation also has various other benefits, such as preventing mammary tumours.
Rabies is endemic in India, with 99% of cases caused by dog bites. the most effective way to prevent the spread of rabies is vaccination of dogs.
We vaccinate every dog we sterilise, in addition to any puppies brought to our attention.
With no owners to take them to the vet, stray animals suffer from wounds and broken bones that do not heal properly, skin conditions, infectious disease, and other problems that go untreated.
We are here to help, by treating as many of these stray animals as possible with our mobile clinic.
