Inside our CNVR clinics

What is CNVR? 

 

CNVR is a phrase we use a lot around here. After all, it’s the only proven, sustainable and humane method of reducing Thailand’s stray dog problemBut what exactly does it mean? 

CNVR stands for the four stages of our clinics: Catch, Neuter, Vaccinate and Release, and it’s one of the most important aspects of our work here at Jai Dog Rescue. So much so, that we even have our very own, purpose-built clinic right here on The Farm, helping us scale up our CNVR efforts. 

 

The “C” in CNVR 

 

Most of dogs that we treat at our clinics are strays. Trapping free-roaming street dogs means we tackle the problem of uncontrolled breeding right at the source, sterilising those dogs who would likely go on to breed most freely. 

While “catch” doesn’t sound too pleasant, every care is taken to catch the dogs in a way that keeps stress to a minimum. Many of the dogs we treat need very little encouragement to hop into a crate and enjoy some food: bribery at its finest! But for those who are more fearful of humans, we make sure they’re caught quickly and calmly to avoid excess panic. 

The dogs are darted by our expert catcher P’Som Chai, using a bamboo blow dart. P’Som is incredibly skilled at what he does, meaning there’s no undue injury or panic-induced scramble. 

Once caught, the dogs are taken to our clinic and sedated, ready to be treated.

The “N” in CNVR 

 

The “N” might stand for neuter, but it would actually be more accurate to say ‘spay and neuter’ – after all, we treat both boys and girls at our clinics! 

The benefits of sterilisation are both wide-ranging and very well-researched: 1 litter of puppies born on the streets can lead to an average of 67,000 more stray dogs in just 6 years! So by sterilising just one dog, we’re preventing thousands more from being born into a life of hardship.

But the benefits of sterilisation aren’t only for future generations: there are significant health and welfare benefits for every dog who passes through our clinics. Sterilised dogs are at much lower risk or developing life-threatening diseases later in life, including ovarian and testicular cancer, pyometra, and prostate disease. 

What’s more, neutered males are less likely to roam and get caught up in road traffic accidents, while spayed females no longer have to face the harrowing odds of keeping their puppies alive.

The “V” in CNVR 

 

There’s one element of our CNVR clinics that often get overlooked: vaccinations. 

While sterilising a dog is the best way to prevent future pups from being born into a life of hardship and struggle, we want to make sure that the dogs in the here and now are also given the best possible chance to live a healthy life. 

That’s why vaccinations are administered to every single dog who passes through our clinics, protecting them from the likes of Rabies, Canine Distemper, Infectious Canine Hepatitis, Canine Parvovirus and Leptospirosis. A shot is also given to kill any worms, ticks or fleas alongside a pain relief jab and long-lasting antibiotic to prevent their wound from getting infected – they really do receive the full works! 

It pains us that so many millions of dogs are still subject to such dangerous and unpredictable conditions, but vaccinations at least give them a better chance of thriving within the street dog community. What’s more, it improves harmony between dogs and humans, helping people feel safer around strays in their area and promoting better welfare for all.

The “R” in CNVR 

 

The “R” is CNVR stands for: release. 

It might sound odd to release a dog back onto the street but, due to the sheer scale of the stray dog problem, it would simply be impossible to provide safe and sanitary shelter for every single one. It’s tempting to imagine that all dogs would be happier off the street, but this isn’t necessarily true: many dogs wouldn’t cope with the upheaval of moving to a shelter, let alone a domestic home, while cramped, overcrowded shelters can be just as scary and dangerous as the street.

It’s also important to recognise that street dogs are often well cared for, especially here in Thailand. When their numbers are manageable and they don’t pose a threat of violence or disease, street dogs are seen as an important part of the community and locals would be very sorry to see them go. Jai Dog Rescue works hard to support the care of local ‘community dogs’, making it easier for the people in their village to feed and look after them.

Set up a regular donation

We’re always happy to step in and rescue a dog that’s struggling on the street, particularly if they’ve been injured. But we also celebrate the harmony that exists within a community when dogs and people alike are given the opportunity to happily co-exist: something that’s only possible thanks to CNVR

Your regular donation allows us to commit to monthly clinics, and helps fund the cost of life-saving vaccinations for all dogs treated.

From all of us at Team Jai, thank you x

Claim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows us to claim tax back on donations made by UK taxpayers. It means that for every £1 you donate, we can claim back 25p...all at no extra cost to you!

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Jai Dog Rescue to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Jai Dog Rescue will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Jai Dog Rescue receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
