Oxsa lived with the Byanjankar family for seven years. But sadly, she passed away from a heart attack on October 2nd, 2013.

She was gone, but she left behind a legacy of unconditional love and taught the family to see her spirit in every dog.

After losing their home in the earthquake on April 27th, 2015, Raina Byanjankar’s family converted half of their garage into an animal shelter.

On July 4th, 2020, Oxsa Nepal was officially registered as a non-profit organization to help more animals and spread compassion among people.

After the demise of Oxsa, Oxsa Nepal was founded with the mission of cultivating a more compassionate and caring environment for animals.
