The Life of Stray Dog and May 13th Matching Day!

Thunder
Thunder

Hi Global Giving Friends, 

We wanted to share with you a video that was made by one of our sister organizations, World for All, in Mumbai, portraying the life of a street dog in India. The focus is to encourage people to adopt strays instead of breeds and be kinder to them. We decided, why reinvent the wheel and have chosen to share their video to allow our supporters a rare look in the life of a dog in India. If you have never been to India, this video can be quite shocking, but it is what we see happen daily and work to improve. 

Here is the link to the video: 

Life of a Stray

 Disclaimer: No dogs were hurt in the making of this video. This video has been put together purely with video editing. The scenes only depict the various challenges a street dog faces everyday in India. This video is meant to sensitize and change their current situation to a better one. 

With your help, we can continue our rescue work, spay/neuter program, and community education. 

We cannot thank you enough for your help in our efforts to help the animals of Dharamsala!! Here is the link to donate on May 13. There is $75,000 for DAR and other Global Giving Partners to try and claim for their work. With your help, we are trying to raise $10,000. 

DONATE HERE ON MAY 13, 2015 EDT. 

Please see the attached photos of some of our current patients that need your help!

Thank you for your support!

The Story of Bali and GG First Bonus Day!!

Bali
Bali

Hello DAR friends, 

In February, Dharamsala Animal Rescue received a call about a baby monkey who had been run over by a car. We brought in him to our clinic to see if we could save him. It was the very first time, for all of us at DAR, to spend this much time with a monkey. We all grew very fond of him so we wanted to share his story with you. We finally dabbled in video so please click HERE to view our time with Bali. 

As you know, but just a reminder, Bali's rescue would not have been possible without your generosity and encouragement. 

With that said, please note that Global Giving's first Bonus Day is March 18th from 9:00am EDT  - 23:59pm EDT. Please donate early as the funds tend to run out fast as we are in competition with all of Global Giving's Partners for the $60,000 in available matching funds. We are trying to raise $10,000 to keep us going for the new few months. Please donate early so we can take advantage of this bonus!!! Click HERE to donate. 

Thank you again for helping us save Bali.

An Ode To Ricky Lee

Hello friends of Dharamsala Animal Rescue, 

 

We hope your 2015 is off to a wonderful start. Here in Dharamsala, it is puppy season. As you know, most puppies are born on the street without proper food, vaccination, care, and warmth (nights are about 2 C of 33F or lower.) The results can be heartbreaking but we do have a few success stories about pups that pull through like this adorable girl. 

We found her on the side of the road all hunched over and I assumed she was doing her "business." However, with a closer look, it was clear she had rickets. Rickets is a vitamin D deficiency, that causes bones to soften, which can cause breakages and malformations of the bones. If you look at the “Before” photo you can see the state she was in on that first day. We decided to name her Ricky (Rickety) Lee Jones, after the soulful American singer/songwriter as a way to promise her a successful future ! 

By day two of her stay with us, she had her legs wrapped and was already flirting with 2 volunteers who fell immediately fell in love . (Photo 2.) By day three, we found a her a foster home where she could be socialized with other dogs, get good nutrition and lots of love. In just a couple weeks time, she went from near death to a happy healthy puppy. Her legs have straightened out and now she runs around with the other dogs at her foster home. (TO SEE VIDEO CLICK HERE)

If anyone, would like to adopt Ricky and give her a forever home, please let us know!  This would be the perfect ending to Ricky's story. 

In other DAR news, we are in the process of upgrading our clinic facilities and could use your assistance in funding this project. See below for details: 

1. Redo prep room and Operation Theater floors to provide a more hygienic environment $300

2. New Microscope $800

Any money we raise above this will automatically go to help with our monthly expenses: medicine, mobile clinic petrol, food, salaries etc. 

CLICK HERE to donate. 

In addition to our current needs, we hope to raise $10,000 on March 18th, Global Giving's First Bonus Day of the year !  There is $60,000 available in matching funds to be handed out.. I will send you a reminder, but please put it on your calendar. If we hit our goal this will cover 4 months of our costs. 

As always, thank you for your support. We would not have been able to save Ricky Lee Jones without you. 

With Gratitude,
