Happy New Year Global Giving Friends,
We are trying to jump start our new year with a campaign to get drivers in Dharamsala to SLOW DOWN for STRAY DOGS. DAR deals with the aftermath of these accidents (on average 5 per week and not all survive.)
If any of you have been to India you know that cars, buses, rickshaws, motorcycles do not stop for anything. Weaving in and around bikes, peoples, car, buses, scooters, cows, dogs and cats is the norm.
So, how can we convince people to stop if there is an animal in their way? Let's change the narrative. Let's have every vehicle that we can, motorcycles included, have a bumper sticker saying:
CAUTION! Vehicle Stops For All Stray Dogs
We know many people who will put this on their vehicle proudly. Then hopefully the rest will follow!
We are also planning a social media campaign so if you do not follow up on Facebook yet, please click below and get ready to share!
To jump start this project we need approximately $350 to order 500 stickers. Any additional we raise will go directly to help our current patients, like Rocky.
Rocky, whom we found lying in a rocky riverbed. He is a really cute dog however his hind legs are not working. We think he got hit by a car and his real owner abandoned him. He was then hit by a vehicle and knocked off the road into a river with many rocks. He has a spinal fracture and hind leg fracture. He is super friendly and we are hoping for the best.
We hope our campaign can help prevent more cases like Rocky's.
Thanks for your support on this. We cannot do it without you! Click Below to donate:
