Treat 100 injured Indian street dogs

Foxy, victim of a hit and run, needs your support
Foxy, victim of a hit and run, needs your support

At Dharamsala Animal Rescue, we receive approximately 7 to 10 calls per week alerting us that a dog that has been hit by a car and left to die on the roadside. 

For some, the call comes too late. For others, like Foxy, the call comes just in time.

She was found bleeding from her nose, not able to walk, and in shock. We had no idea if she would make it, and we knew we had to work fast. 

In just a few weeks time, Foxy was back on her feet and acting just like any puppy should—a combo of adorable and naughty.

For just $50, you can help a dog like Foxy. This is all that is needed to take her from rescue to recovery. 

So...mark your calendar! Another GlobalGiving Matching Day is coming. For one-day only, donations to Dharamsala Animal Rescue will be matched up to 50%. Join us on July 18 at 9am ET for this single day opportunity. (Click here to find the time in your location: https://dardogs.com/2lI3f0j.)

Help us reach our $5,000 goal so we receive the full $2,500 match by Global Giving. $5000 in donations to DAR will fund our Street Animal Rescue program and provide 24/7 emergency care for 100 animals suffering from severe injuries, illnesses, or other life-threatening conditions. 

The additional funding will go towards administrative costs including salaries for our local Indian vets, vet assistants, and welfare officers who work round the clock to save as many animals as they can. Believe it or not, $2500 is all that is needed to cover one months salaries for the local staff. 

We couldn't do this without the dedication of volunteers and donors like you. Remember to donate early so we can get the matching funds before they run out! 

With gratitude, 

Deb Jarrett, Founder

P.S. Add a reminder to your calendar: July 18, 9am ET (time in your location https://dardogs.com/2lI3f0j.)

The Little By Little Campaign Helps A Lot

Ash Before and After
Ash Before and After

Dear DAR Supporters! 

Meet Ash. Ash was found with a rope tied around his neck. 

The rope must have been put on him when he was much smaller, because by the time we found him, we had to cut it off and it had caused the huge open wound shown in the photograph above. 

We are not sure why, but many local villagers tie ropes and strings around dogs necks and tails when they are puppies. Sometimes, it is for superstitious reasons—one being that by tying a rope or string, it will make the dog a better protector for you home and family, or that a dog will not pee or poop in your house. 

We are working in the communities to teach people this is not humane and simply not true. Most of the time it causes issues similar to Ash's. 

Luckily, after 3 weeks at DAR, Ash is now happy and almost healed.  And this is thanks to you.

DAR would not exist without you, our dear supporters and friends. Thank you for all your generous donations throughout the years. It cost us $7,800 (5,600 GBP), per month to run the rescue. This week, we hope you join us as we raise funds for DAR with the help of the Global Giving Little by Little campaign. 

 

Today, April 9th through April 13th,Global Giving will match donations up to $50 at 50% while funds remain!

 And guess what, $50 is all it costs to take a dog like Ash from rescue to recovery.  So donate this week, and share this message with all of your animal loving friends. Ash and thes stray dogs of Dharamsala will be forever grateful. 

 

It is not often that one finds an animal-centered NGO/NPO which is completely focused on treating each animal with love, dignity and a wealth of experience and knowledge. Do go there / support - your faith in human nature will be restored and you'll want to take all the special permanent and temporary beautiful doggie souls home. It's a guarantee! All made possible by a heart-warming, passionate and exceptionally knowledgeable team. ~ Irma Wouters, Google review

Guess What These Pups Have in Common.

Is it that they are all adorable? 

Is it that they are all at Dharamsala Animal Rescue? 

How about, they all have been rescued off the streets of Dharamsala. 

 

Well, all of the above are true, however, it is not what I am referring to. All of these pups took a ride in DAR's jeep.

Yes, sounds like a boring topic, but DAR's jeep is actually one of our most crucial players. In fact, we refer to her as "the Jaguar." She may not be quite as pretty as a Jaguar, but we treat her like gold. She goes out two to four times a week to catch and carry street dogs to our clinic who need to be sterilized and vaccinated. She keeps them safe inside her cabin. 

She also goes out on emergency calls several times a week. She gives some comfort to the animals that have just been hit by cars, are suffering from disease, and cozies dumped pups like the mom they no longer have. 

We wash her many times a week, get her painted when needed. Fix the many bumps and bruises she aquires traveling on the twisty gnarly mountain roads of Dharamsala. 

We have had her since 2012—she is almost 6 years old—and is now in need of a facelift to keep her going. We told her she did not have to be so vain, but now we realize she is not whining without cause. The floor bed of her cabin will literally fall out if we do not fix her. There is rust everywhere. She will no longer be able to hold our babies safely from the street to the shelter. 

The Jaguar needs your help. Her facelift will cost $750 (530 GBP). Can you help return her to her former glory? 

We would be so thankful. Please see attached photos.
