We need your help to build a dog shelter in India. Stray dogs get hit by cars all the times on busy Indian roads and are left to die. A shelter would allow us to save many dogs from dying horrible deaths on the streets. Please help.

Hello, 

I am a resident of San Francisco, California and work a regular job like many of you. I am also of Indian origin. On my recent trip to India, I was appalled by the plight of street dogs also know as 'stray' dogs in India. They live on the streets and survive on whatever they can find, most of the times on left over human food in garbage cans. 

Often, these strays sleep under cars and trucks for the shade during the summer months and warmth during winter. And when the vehicle takes off they are sometime crushed to death or crippled. There are also numerous road accidents on Indian highways where dogs and puppies roam around freely. 

These uncared animals get sick, infected and lie on the roadside waiting to die.

Overwhelmed by the sights there and frantically looking for answers, I came across a non-profit that was doing tremendous work in rescuing and rehabilitating injured animals and providing care until they were healthy and ready for adoption. 

Volunteers would lift injured/sick animals with their hands, put them in a rickshaw and take them to a vet for medical care. 

We raised some funds this year to buy an ambulance so that first aid could be provided on the spot. They are now able to attend to a lot more cases than before. 

This plea for funds is to build an animal shelter so that rescued animals can live there until a suitable family is ready to adopt them. Note that adopting stray dogs isn't common. Even dog lovers want foreign breeds such as German Shepard dogs, poodles, labs, retrievers etc. So it takes a while before someone comes up to adopt a stray dog. 

The land for the shelter has been bought with donor money and a fenced wall has been built around it. We need money to construct a building and hire some help for day to day operation. 

I appreciate your kindness and compassion since you took the time to visit this site and read this. Please donate whatever you can afford. Even a single dollar can feed a dog for a week. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email, text or call me. My email id is kirti.bhanushali@gmail.com and my cell # is 925.895.0395  If you are outside of the US you may simply email or whatsapp text me and I will be happy to call you back.

I thank you will all my heart. Namaste.
