Summary

Blackie is one of thousands of dogs suffering in the streets of Dharamsala. Each week we rescue dozens of these street dogs and work to provide them with a safe and healthy environment to live. This project will fund the treatment of thousands of stray dogs who endure life-threatening injuries and ailments on the streets of Dharamsala, India during monsoon.

Challenge

Every week, Dharamsala Animal Rescue responds to rescue calls to our helpline about dogs suffering from severe wounds, illnesses, or disease. More and more rescues are showing up at DAR with mange, flea allergies or other skin conditions due to the environment in which they live - the street. Eating scraps and trash results in poor health and low immunity, the perfect host for mites and fleas.

Solution

Treating these dogs can take weeks or months depending on the severity of the infection. If we can't identify the type of condition the dog is suffering from, we have to try various antibiotics and steroids to see if we can find the right match. Even a dog with a very straight-forward case of mange can take weeks to respond to the meds. On average it costs $100to treat a dog with mange or other skin conditionincluding sterilization and vaccinations.

Long-Term Impact

Dharamsala Animal Rescue has saved the lives of 11,248 street dogs, vaccinated 7,043 strays and built community in Dharamsala. The DAR team works everyday to teach the community to treat the stray animal population as a local problem that can be managed with compassion and care.
